On behalf of Mary Jeanne Curley, Director of Communications, CCIU:
As you are aware, the Board of School Directors of the Owen J. Roberts School District is in the process of selecting a Superintendent of Schools and is seeking input from school personnel, parents and the community by means of a series of focus groups. Focus group participants will share their experience and insight into the type of leader that the district will need to successfully educate students for the 21st century.
The input and insight of parents, guardians, and members of the community is highly valued by the School Board. As such, the Board invites you to participate in a Focus Group conducted by the Chester County Intermediate Unit. The meeting for parents/guardians is on Monday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at OJR Middle School. A meeting for members of the community is set for Tuesday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at OJR Middle School.
The goals of the focus groups are to:
- Identify the qualities needed in a superior school leader;
- Identify the strengths and skills essential for the next superintendent to demonstrate;
- Identify key issues facing the district in the next five years that the superintendent will need to address; and,
- Identify the obstacles to student achievement and the strategies the next superintendent will need to employ to overcome those obstacles.
The focus group will last approximately one hour, during which time a member of the CCIU search team will guide participants through the four questions.
