Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Board of Education Seeks Public Input on Superintendent Search
The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Board of Education voted on October 22nd to hire the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) to help facilitate its search for the next superintendent of the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools (ECPPS). To that end, the board is seeking and encouraging direct input from interested members of the staff and community to help shape the search process and assist in defining the qualities and characteristics of the next ECPPS superintendent. The following avenues for input are available to the community and staff:
Community Survey - The Board encourages parents and community members to participate in a short community survey that can be accessed and completed online via links on the ECPPS website at www.ecpps.k12.nc.us. The superintendent search info is located on the homepage. Paper copies of the survey also may be found in the main office at all ECPPS schools. Completed paper surveys may be dropped in a specified box at each school and will be provided to NCSBA. Community members may also submit the surveys to Allison Schafer via mail at NCSBA, P.O. Box 97877, Raleigh, NC 27624, via email at email@example.com, or via fax at 919-841-4020. All surveys must be completed by Monday, January 14, 2019, with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at the regular board meeting on Monday, January 28, 2019.
Staff Survey - In addition, all employees of ECPPS are encouraged to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the search survey will be communicated via school system email.
Staff Comment/Forums – The Board has scheduled three forums specifically for staff to encourage their participation in this process. There will be a sheet available at each forum for staff to sign up to speak or provide comments. Staff members who wish to provide comments must sign in prior to the beginning of the forums and the Board will call participants accordingly. The Board will follow policy/guidelines as set forth in Policy 2310, Public Participation at Board Meetings.
