The Windsor Board of Education has taken the next steps in permanently filling the shoes of former Superintendent Elizabeth Feser, who left the district to become the superintendent in Milford.
The board has announced that they have hired the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) to aid in the search for a new superintendent. NESDEC was founded in 1946 under the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and works to assist in the development of schools throughout the region, including filling superintendent, principal and other leadership positions withing a school system.
NESDEC will help the board find candidates and fill the position by the end of December.
In addition to the help NESDEC will provide, the Board of Education is hoping to receive input from parents, teachers and taxpayers throughout Windsor. In doing so, the board is inviting interested parties to take part in a focus group set to take place the week of September 26.
According to Windsor Public Schools representatives, "The groups are designed to obtain participant input about the attributes, experience and knowledge that the new Superintendent should possess. The groups also provide an opportunity for participants to identify immediate tasks, which the new superintendent should address."
Those interested in taking part should contact the superintendent's office by calling 860-687-2000 ext. 236.
