Superintendent Search Community Letter
As the Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees begins its national search for a new Superintendent of Schools, we would like to share with you our goals for this process. Our primary focus is to find the best candidate to serve our school district.
Our children and staff deserve the very best. We know our community expects a quality educational program, and we will find the right person with values reflective of our community.
On Wednesday, November 19, the Board will hold its first meeting to discuss next steps for our search at Career Center East. The time has not been determined; however, it will be posted similar to our other meetings. During this first meeting, we will take action to start the request for proposals to hire a search firm, which will act similar to a corporate headhunter. LISD is one of the 100 largest school districts in the nation, and we will seek a firm that has a solid record of successfully recruiting effective superintendents.
Throughout this search, we will be as open and transparent as possible. We will create a section on the district website at www.LISD.net to keep the community informed of the entire process. As information is updated, the district’s Office of Public Information and Community Relations will send out an electronic notification informing our community of new information.
Additionally, we will seek community input. Our Board wants to hear the attributes and qualifications you want in the next Superintendent. Throughout this process, community forums and electronic feedback will be communicated to staff, parents and community members. We encourage you to follow LISD on Facebook and Twitter to ensure you are well informed of any input opportunity. Notices will also be published in our local papers.
Our Board encourages you to participate in this very important process. If you have questions regarding the Superintendent search, please feel free to contact the Office of Public Information and Community Relations at 469.948.8152 or email Karen Permetti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
