January 2, 2019: Superintendent Search Process Underway – Parents and Community Invited to Participate


The Newington School District has engaged the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) to assist them in the search process for a new Superintendent of Schools.


An integral part of the process involves parent and community participation in focus groups. The groups are designed to obtain participant input about the attributes, experience, and knowledge that the new superintendent should possess. The groups also provide an opportunity for participants to identify immediate tasks which the new superintendent should address.


Newington parents and community members will have the opportunity to join a focus group session on Thursday, January 17, 2019. The first session on Thursday, January 17, 2019, will begin at 8:30am in the Helen Nelson Meeting Room at Newington Town Hall for parents only. In addition, an evening focus group session for parents and community members will be conducted at the Newington High School Auditorium on Thursday, January 17, 2019, beginning at 6:30pm. The focus group sessions will last approximately 1 hour.
