HINSDALE – Community Consolidated School District 181 is inviting the community to complete a survey to assist in the district’s search for the next superintendent.

The survey asks respondents to consider the district’s strengths, issues facing the district, and desired skills and characteristics when selecting a superintendent.

The survey will be open Monday through March 25 and can be accessed on the district website: d181.org.

Community members are also invited to attend a focus group at 7 p.m. March 24 at Elm School.

At the District 181 Board of Education meeting on Feb. 10, it was announced that current Superintendent Dr. Renée Schuster would leave the district, effective June 30.

On Feb. 24, the board approved the hiring of BWP and Associates to lead the superintendent search process. The firm developed the survey and will facilitate focus groups and the community forum to further capture staff and parent input in the search process.

The firm anticipates presenting a slate of candidates to the Board of Education in April, according to a news release from District 181.
