Cazenovia Board of Education seeks community input on superintendent search

— The Cazenovia Central School District Board of Education is seeking community input on the selection of the district’s new superintendent of schools with an anonymous online survey.

Current Superintendent Robert Dubik announced to the Board of Education last June his plans to retire after the current academic year ends in June 2014.

One of the main responsibilities of any board of education is to hire a superintendent when needed, and the Cazenovia board voted in September to hire Jody Manning, superintendent of OCM BOCES, to lead the search. A typical superintendent search takes approximately four to six months to complete, and that process is now under way.

As the search continues and the pool of applicants narrows, board members would like Cazenovia Central School District residents to weigh in on the qualities and characteristics they’d like to see in the next superintendent of schools. To facilitate that, the board has created an online survey at surveymonkey.com/s/V5PG5J5 and encourages all district residents to complete it.

Starting Friday, Oct. 11, the survey link will be featured on the home page of the district’s website at caz.cnyric.org. All community members need to do is click the link, and they’ll be taken directly to the anonymous online survey, which should take no longer than 10 minutes to fill out.

The survey will available on the district website for one month, until Nov. 11.

Paper copies also are available upon request in the district office, which is located in Cazenovia Middle School. Please mail or drop off the completed survey by Friday, Nov. 8.
