Sag Harbor School Board Seeks Public Input in Superintendent Search

Meetings set for Nov. 27 and 28, and district residents are encouraged to answer a survey as well.

Dear Members of the Sag Harbor School Community,

The members of the Sag Harbor Union Free School District Board of Education cordially invite all members of the school community to attend one of the designated meetings in the Pierson Auditorium to assist the Board in establishing direction for the selection process for the new Superintendent of Schools. The Board is facing the most important task any school board ever faces: replacing its chief school officer.  We are confident that you will want to be a part of this process.

Meetings will be held:

Tuesday, November 27
10:00 – 10:45 am
6:00 – 6:45 pm
7:00 – 7:45 pm

Wednesday, November 28
10:00 – 10:45 am 
6:00 – 6:45 pm
7:00 – 7:45 pm

The first, and probably the most important, part of the process is to identify the personal and professional qualities and experiences that the school community would like the new superintendent of schools to possess.  At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to meet one or more of the search consultants from School Leadership, LLC which has been engaged by the Board to assist it in the search.  The consultants will describe the process and estimated timetable for conducting the search.  The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to hearing participant responses to three prompts:  (1) From your perspective, what would attract a highly-qualified educator to seek the position of Superintendent in our school district?  (2)  What do you see as some of the major leadership challenges that the new Superintendent will face over the next three to five years?  (3)  What types of prior experiences and personal and professional qualities would you hope the new Superintendent will have?

Information from this meeting, and from other meetings with members of the school community, will be synthesized into a set of search specifications.  These specifications will then guide the Board of Education as it undertakes the search for the new Superintendent.

If you are unable to attend this meeting, we would ask that you complete the brief questionnaire or and return it one of the following ways:

  • Mail directly to School Leadership, LLC, 71 Dogwood Avenue, Malverne, NY 11565
  • Fax to School Leadership, 603-580-1124
  • Email to School Leadership, info@leadschools.us
  • Give to Mary Adamczyk, District Clerk, Sag Harbor UFSD, 200 Jermain Avenue, Sag Harbor, NY

Thank you in advance for providing critical input to this process.


Theresa M. Samot
Board President
