CVSD Superintendent Search




The Chartiers Valley Board of School Directors is in the process of finding the district’s next superintendent.  The Board has asked its search consultant to conduct a series of focus group discussions, and we are now providing an additional opportunity for staff and community members to provide their thoughts and opinions.  We’d ask that you take a few moments to answer the three questions below and provide any additional comments.  All results will be anonymous.  This information will be helpful for the Board as they move through the search process.  Thank you for your input.




Superintendent Search Update |1.26.18


The Board of School Directors wishes to thank everyone who participated in the focus group conversations on Wednesday.  We received word the meetings were an excellent opportunity for thoughtful, candid dialogue.  Mr. Templeton, our search consultant who facilitated the conversations, will be providing us with a more in-depth briefing in the very near future, and we will most definitely be utilizing the results of these discussions in the assessment of candidates (through interview questions, reference checking, etc.).  We are also confident some of this information will make its way into the development of goals and objectives for the superintendent evaluation process.  Thanks again to everyone.
