Upcoming Community Forums  
on Search for New Superintendent

San Rafael City Schools invites you to assist with the search for the District's next Superintendent. 
The San Rafael City Schools Board of Education is in the process of conducting a search for purposes of hiring the District's next Superintendent. The consultants Rich Thome and Kent Bechler of Leadership Associates were selected to advise the Board in this important process. They will be in our District from March 26 - 27, 2019 to facilitate several sessions with various groups within our District's community to receive input about the desired qualities and characteristics of the next Superintendent. This input will be a valuable contribution to the recruitment and selection process.

The Board is soliciting responses to the following questions:

1. What personal and professional qualities for an incoming superintendent will be a match for the San Rafael City Schools?

2. What are the strengths of the District, and what are the challenges you see for the District in the coming years?

In addition to the various sessions, the District will be hosting Open Forums, which are open to all the public. No appointment is necessary to participate. The Open Forums are an opportunity for the public to provide input and to hear more about the search process. They are scheduled at various schools throughout the District, but all Open Forums are open to parents, teachers and staff from any school
