The Carmi-White Co. CUSD 5 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process. The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all board members, all staff, all parents and community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position. The survey for parents can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HBMVBLP & on the district website. The survey for community members can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HHDNMMW & on the district website. The survey deadline is: September 13, 2021 at 11:45 p.m. Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.
