Groton Superintendent Search

Invitation to Participate in Focus Groups and Survey

The Groton Board of Education invites the community to participate in the search process for a new Superintendent of Schools.

During the week of August 31, Mary Broderick, the CABE Search Services Consultant, will conduct a series of focus groups, primarily via ZOOM, to hear from the community on the qualities, experiences, and characteristics desired in a new Superintendent of Schools.  Students, parents, teachers, administrators, non-certified and support staff, city and town officials, and the community at large are encouraged to participate.

Please contact Mary Broderick at (mbroderick.cabesearch@cabe.org) or call 860-608-1763 to receive the ZOOM invitation.

All are also welcome to participate in an anonymous survey to help clarify the qualities and characteristics desired in our next Superintendent.  Please find the survey link in the Helpful Links area below

The survey will remain open until September 11, 2020. Feedback from the focus groups and the surveys will be incorporated into a leadership profile that will guide the Board of Education in identifying high-quality candidates who best fit the needs of the district and the town.
