Focus groups to aid Clinton search for superintendent

Posted

CLINTON — A series of stakeholder focus group meetings have been scheduled as Clinton Central School searches for a new superintendent to replace Dr. Stephen L. Grimm, starting on Monday, June 13.

An important part of the process is gathering community input about the attributes, experiences and desired skills for a new superintendent.

Focus groups are one way to solicit this information, as well as identify priorities that the new superintendent should focus on in their first year in the district, officials said..

Search Consultant Dr. Patricia N. Kilburn, will hold a series of stakeholder focus groups for parents/caregivers, staff, students, alumni and community members between 5-9 p.m. Monday, June 13 via Zoom.

Participation in the focus groups will be by registration only and will require about one hour of participants’ time. In order to best accommodate participants’ schedules, the focus groups will be held virtually, and because focus groups are intended to be representative of a larger population, participation will be limited to 55 total participants.

Anyone interested in participating in a stake holder focus group should complete the registration form at www.ccs.edu/focusgroup or call Julia Scranton, board clerk, at 315-557-2253 by no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, June 9. During registration, you will be asked to identify as a parent/caregiver, staff member, student, alumnus or community member. Participants will be randomly selected for focus group timeslots via lottery according to these categories.

All registrants will receive an email from suptforums@oneida-boces.org by close of business on Friday, June 10, confirming the time of the focus group they have been selected to participate in. Anyone unable to participate is encouraged to participate in the public, online survey.

A public, online survey, including the same questions from the focus groups, will be made available on the district website www.ccs.edu, and Facebook page once the focus groups have been completed for anyone who is unable to participate in the virtual focus groups.
