District 220 Begins Search for New Superintendent
On April 8, 2014 the District 220 Board of Education announced that Dr. Tom Leonard informed them that he is the lone finalist to become superintendent of a school district in Austin, Texas. That appointment is likely to be confirmed April 30, to be effective July 1, 2014. The 220 Board announcement can be found on the Barrington District 220 website under “Board of Education – Newsletters”. In that announcement the Board outlines the next steps for the process of finding a new superintendent.
On April 14, 2014 the Board issued an invitation for input from all stakeholders regarding suggestions, insights, preferred characteristics or any other ideas and opinions related to this important decision of selecting a new superintendent for District 220. The Board indicates in the invitation that due to the time constraints there will likely not be a “structured questionnaire” approach, therefore the only formal option will be the e-mail process described in the invitation. The invitation, including the e-mail address for submission of comments can be found under “Board of Education – Newsletters” on the District 220 website.
It is important that taxpayers make their thoughts known to the District on a timely basis.
