Superintendent Search Public Input

Eugene School District 4J is seeking a new superintendent. 2014–15 is Dr. Sheldon Berman’s final year as superintendent of the district. The board hopes to name a new superintendent in spring 2015.

Input from parents, students, staff and community members is an important part of the process of seeking the district’s next superintendent.

Citizen Screening Committee

Eugene School Board has appointed a citizen screening committee composed of parents and community members as well as employee group representatives. The committee will review and interview applicants and determine a list of semifinalists to be recommended to the school board.

Candidate Profile

In December 2014 parents, staff, students and other interested community members were invited to provide input on the strengths and qualities the district’s next leader should have. More than 1,250 stakeholders completed an online survey and more than 120 provided input in person at a community forum or focus group. This input was used to help develop criteria for the superintendent search.
