The Lumberton Independent School District Board of Trustees met on Thursday, Nov. 9 for their regularly scheduled meeting.
With few items on the agenda, the board moved quickly through the business at hand before going into executive session.
The board has employed the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services to assist in the hunt for the next Lumberton superintendent, according to the LISD website.
Contacted for an update on the search, Acting Superintendent Gerald Chandler stated that “the board will release an official statement on December 7, whenever the timeline has been fully established.”
In an effort of public outreach, the board is offering a survey on the www.lumberton.k12.tx.u website to develop a profile of the “leadership qualities to be sought in the new superintendent.”
There are just four questions asked in the survey: what characterizes the strengths of the district, what important issues face the district, and what professional or personal characteristics should the board look for in the superintendent search?
It’s a write-in style survey questionnaire which allows for the individual to respond freely without limitation. Every answer is anonymous and personal; there’s no right answer.
