As Brenham ISD looks to bring in a new school superintendent, the public is invited to share feedback as part of that search process.
A community survey is open for participants to answer questions about what traits they would like to see in the next superintendent, important issues facing the district and what its strengths are. The survey can be taken here.
In addition to the survey, a series of community involvement sessions will be held on September 25th and 26th.
For the general public, sessions will be held on September 25th at noon and 6 p.m. in the Pride Academy auditorium, 1301 South Market Street, and at 7 p.m. in the Brenham Junior High School auditorium, 1200 Carlee Street. There will also be a session on September 26th at 12:30 p.m. in the Pride Academy auditorium.
A pair of sessions on September 25th in the Pride Academy auditorium will bring in community leaders. Business leaders will be the audience at 11 a.m., while religious and non-profit leaders will be at 3 p.m.
Brenham ISD employees will have six feedback opportunities, four on September 25th and two on September 26th. On September 25th, those include meetings of executive leadership team members at 10 a.m. in the Pride Academy auditorium; any district employee at 2 p.m. in the Pride Academy auditorium; secondary teachers and staff at 4:30 p.m. in the Brenham Junior High School auditorium; and elementary teachers and staff at 5 p.m. in the Alton Elementary School cafetorium, 1210 South Market Street. On September 26th, campus administrators can meet at 10 a.m. in the Pride Academy auditorium, and then current and former employees are invited to the Pride Academy auditorium at 11 a.m.
The Brenham School Board is working with the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services during the search for a new superintendent, after current superintendent Dr. Tylor Chaplin announced his intent to retire at the end of December. The board is seeking input from school personnel and the broader public to shape the criteria for the ideal candidate.
