Newark Public Schools Hosts Community Meeting for Public Input on Superintendent Search

[Newark, NJ – February 23] Newark Public Schools will host a series of Community Meeting for public input on the search for the Superintendent of Newark Public Schools. The meeting will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 6 – 8 p.m. at 5 locations.

The Newark Board of Education is beginning the process of searching for the first Superintendent of the Newark Public Schools to be hired under full local control. As one of the initial steps in the process, the search committee would like to seek input from the Newark community on the desired characteristics and skills that you would like to see in the next Superintendent.

A meeting will be held in each ward, simultaneously to allow parents, students and the community to easily access a meeting nearby. Meetings will be held at the following locations: Central High School in the Central Ward, Oliver Street School in the East Ward, First Avenue School in the North Ward, Belmont Runyon School in the South Ward and Speedway Academies in the West Ward.
