Here’s what people want in new CMS Superintendent

Results from a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools-issued survey released to the public on Tuesday. The survey’s purpose was to gather input on what the community wants in the next CMS Superintendent.

The school board has been working with consulting firm Civility Localized to determine what parents and community members were looking for in a new CMS superintendent.

The eight-week community engagement initiative, that lasted from Sept. 26 to Dec. 13., included interviews, focus groups, a survey, and community listening sessions to learn what people want in the district’s next leader.

There were approximately 1,714 survey responses and over 200 people participated in the focus group, listening session or interviews.

“The goal was to gain as many perspectives as possible,” Christine Edwards, Founder of Civility Localized, said. “We value the lived experiences of each participant and hope this report illuminates the needs and priorities of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community in an authentic way.” 

The board will begin conducting its official search with an expectation of hiring the superintendent by summer.
