View the Superintendent Search survey results

Below are the results of the Superintendent Search survey that was offered to the school community in late August through mid-September. Of the 1,232 people who viewed the survey, 980 completed it. This is very consistent with surveys conducted in other districts according to Dr. Frank Auriemma of Strategic Educational Advantage, LLC, the firm who conducted the survey and tabulated its results.

The results are disaggregated by participant groups: administators, community members, parents, students, support staff and teachers. There is also a summary of all participant responses.

About the superintendent search

The members of the Board of Education of the Goshen Central School District is working with Strategic Educational Advantage, LLC (SEA) to conduct its search for the next superintendent of schools.

“One of the greatest responsibilities of a Board of Education is to hire a superintendent who possesses the qualities of a true educational leader,” said Board President Jason Pucci. “We believe that hiring a professional search firm such as SEA will provide the best pathway to finding a candidate that our school community expects and deserves.”

The superintendent search process will incorporate community and faculty/staff involvement through interviews, surveys and public forums. SEA will gather feedback from the school community — students, teachers, support staff, administrators, parents and community members — to create a candidate profile for Goshen’s next superintendent of schools. The new superintendent is expected to begin duties in July 2021.
