(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) It was another chance wasted for those wanting to give some input over who the next superintendent of the St. Joseph School District could be.
A total of seven people made it to Roubidoux Middle school Tuesday night to meet with representatives from School Exec Connect, the search firm hired by the district to help find a new superintendent.
Like the first meeting last week attended by around a dozen people, those coordinating the meeting were looking for opinions on strengths of the district and the type of person who they think would be successful taking charge of the schools.
"It's helpful for a board to hear that," said School Exec Connect Craig Larson. "When you talk to parents you hear these comments. When the survey was filled out the parents ranked these things as the biggest strengths, challenges and characteristics. When you look at the staff, it might be different."
More than a thousand people have filled out on-line surveys.
A final town hall is scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Spring Garden Middle school.
The district hopes to have a new superintendent selected by February.
