Good News - The Georgetown School District's search for a new Director of Special Education has been successful in attracting highly qualified, experienced candidates for this important position! At this time the district's search has been narrowed to three finalists.
Next week, each candidate will come in for one day to meet with various administrators, school committee members and, of course, our special education parents! The district is looking for help from interested special education parents to speak with the candidates and offer their feedback and thoughts regarding them.
The candidates will be visiting on Monday (4/9), Wednesday (4/11), and Thursday (4/12); the scheduled time to meet with parents will be from 2:30pm-3:00pm. If you would like to help interview the candidates, please let me know by Friday, April 6th, at noon. The first five parents to contact me regarding their interest and confirming availability for a particular day will be selected. Upon your selection, I will forward specific information, as I receive it, to you regarding the candidate(s) that you will meet and the location of the interviews.
I thank you very much for considering this important way to help our school district select the very best candidate for Director of Special Education. The ability to dialog, speak with, listen to and relate to our special education parents is a critical qualification for the ideal candidate to have. The process of building positive relationships with special education parents is paramount to providing the best quality programs and services for our students. Experience building effective special education programs, creative problem solving skills, the ability to make and explain valid data/research-based decisions, are a few other valuable qualities for the candidates to have. In preparing for an interview, you may want to come up with your own ideas of important qualifications or qualities for a candidate to have. Please feel free to ask whatever questions you believe will help lead our schools to select the best candidate, rather than any question related to your own child's particular situation.
I look forward to hearing from any special education parent who would like to help conduct interviews and will be available at the aforementioned times.
All best regards, Pam Lundquist, Chairperson, Georgetown SEPAC at email@example.com
