The Peters Township School District will host focus group meetings for the community "so that residents may share their experience and insight into the type of leader the district will need to successfully educate our students for the 21st Century," officials said.
The goals of the focus groups are to:
- Identify the qualities needed in a superior school leader
- Identify the strengths and skills essential for the next superintendent to demonstrate
- Identify key issues facing the district in the next five years that the next superintendent will need to address and
- Identify the obstacles to student achievement and the strategies the next superintendent will need to employ to overcome those obstacles.
