SPECIAL BOARD MEETING SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 20

 

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board of Education will be holding a special meeting on Thursday, January 20, 2011, at 6:00pm in the district office board room: 1651 16th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404.  This meeting is open to the public. 

 

The purpose of this meeting is to provide the Board of Education an opportunity to meet with Leadership Associates to discuss and agree upon the timeline and process of the search for SMMUSD’s new permanent Superintendent. 

 

This special meeting is the first step in a mutli-step search process.  Formal community forums designed to obtain broad community input regarding the search will be scheduled in the very near future and will allow members of the community and district employees the opportunity to provide input regarding what key skills and attributes they would like in a Superintendent.  A press release (http://www.smmusd.org/press/index.html) and Twitter posting (http://twitter.com/SMMUSD/) will announce when these community forums will take place.

 

SMMUSD is searching for a new Superintendent because Mr. Tim Cuneo, SMMUSD’s current Superintendent, is retiring in June 2011. 

 

The agenda will be posted to the district website later today: http://www.smmusd.org/board/meetings.html.
