Superintendent Search Community Forums - UPDATE

On behalf of the Board of Education, we would like to update you about our Superintendent Search. 

Several of you have suggested that we try a time a different time or format for our Superintendent Search Community Forums.  Therefore, we have added four additional forums to our upcoming calendars. 

On Wednesday, August 28th, we will hold three Facebook Live forums at 9:00 AM,  1:00 PM and 7:00 PM. To “attend” simply click on Asheville City Schools’ Facebook page during one of the Facebook Live forum times.  The format will be very similar to what we are using for our neighborhood forums.  

After a brief snapshot of Asheville City Schools, we will use a fun and interactive online process to capture your ideas regarding our next longterm leader.  

Like all our Superintendent Search Community Forums, the information we gather from the Facebook Live forums will be shared with the Asheville City Board of Education that very same day.  

Please know that an additional forum has been added on Wednesday, September 4th.  It will be held at Vance Elementary School and will be facilitated completely in Spanish.  Doors will open at 5:15 PM, and our discussion will start promptly at 5:30 PM. 

As a reminder, additional Superintendent Search Community Forums include:  

  • Thursday,  August 22nd at the Arthur Edington Center
  • Monday, August 26th at Hall Fletcher Elementary School 
  • Thursday, August 29th at the North Asheville Library 

For those of you who have already attended one of our forums, thank you.  If you are planning to attend one of our future input sessions, please know we are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
