Community survey launched for Fort Plain superintendent search

The Fort Plain Central School District Board of Education is seeking public input through an online survey to help inform the upcoming search for a new superintendent of schools.

The brief, anonymous survey seeks feedback regarding the characteristics and personal attributes desired of the next superintendent and what opportunities and challenges they will face. The survey, which will be open until Jan. 12, can be accessed by visiting this link.

Stakeholder focus groups are also being planned for the future to gather additional input.

The Fort Plain Board of Education has selected HFM BOCES District Superintendent Dr. David Ziskin to serve as a consultant during the search process.

As part of their statutory duties, BOCES district superintendents may be asked by component school boards to act as consultants during superintendent searches. Dr. Ziskin will work with the board to create recruitment material, assist with the development of selection criteria and a process for interviews. He will serve as the search consultant at no charge.

Following the community survey, BOCES will begin advertising the position in in mid-January with interviews expected to begin in March. The Board of Education’s goal is to have the next superintendent start work by the start of the 2022-23 school year.
