Lamar Consolidated ISD has set up three town hall meetings in the next two weeks for community input in its search for a new superintendent.
The district has set up three days for in-person meetings for parents, staff, community members and students to voice their opinions on what they want to see in a new superintendent.
The meetings are on Thursday, Jan. 7 at George Ranch High School, Wednesday, Jan. 13 at Fulshear High School and Thursday, Jan. 14 at Terry High School. All three meetings will take place beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The three meetings will follow LCISD’s COVID-19 protocols and will have mask-wearing and social distancing mandatory. Also, all three meetings will be available for streaming on the district’s website on the day of the meeting.
LCISD announced earlier this month that it will use JG Consulting as its firm to help with its search. The job will be officially posted on Jan. 22 and applicants can begin applying for the position until Feb. 12.
After a week of reviewing candidates, the first round of interviews of the applicants will happen on March 8-12, with the final round on March 29-30.
The board is expected to name a finalist on April 8, with final approval slated to be on April 29.
Current Supt. Dr. Thomas Randle, who announced his retirement in October, is expected to stay on board until a new superintendent is named.
There is also an online survey available for those interested in sending their feedback on the superintendent search. The survey can be filled out at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/75ZB59G.
