The Palos Heights School District 128 Board of Education has begun the process of selecting a new Superintendent to replace the retiring Dr. Kathleen Casey. Dr. Casey will be completing her eighth year as District 128 Superintendent upon her retirement on June 30, 2015.
The selection of a new Superintendent is the most important decision that a school board can undertake. The process will take time, determination and the full cooperation of our entire educational community. Although the seven members of the school board hold the ultimate responsibility for the appointment of a new Superintendent, the Board of Education strongly believes that input from our community and staff members is essential in this process.
To achieve this goal, we are asking for your help. The Board of Education has developed an online survey, which highlights specific desirable characteristics of successful Superintendents. The survey is available on the district’s website at www.palos128.org. and will remain open until tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 12 ). Each survey also has space provided for additional suggestions that you may wish the board to consider. All surveys will remain anonymous and a signature is not required.
As our school board moves forward with the selection of our new Superintendent, your participation in the process is vital. Thank you very much for your time, your effort and your interest in this most important task.
