Turnout low for superintendent input meetings


Weatherford Democrat

— By JUDY SHERIDAN

Two public input meetings set to gather community feedback on the characteristics and qualities needed by Aledo ISD’s new superintendent drew a total of four residents, one in the afternoon and three in the evening.

The sessions were supervised by Dr. Marian Strauss, of Executive Search Services, from the Texas Association of School Boards, and Kim Krause, with the field services marketing division of TASB.

Strauss said she thought district residents were completing the online survey on the district’s website instead of attending the meetings, which were announced in newspapers, on the school website and in a “blast” to parents.

The board is scheduled to review the results of the leadership profile assessments, expected to include input from selected students, administrators, board members, parents, faculty and support staff, April 4.
