Survey time extended for New Fairfield superintendent search
NEW FAIRFIELD — The district has extended the time to respond to a survey for its search for a new superintendent until the end of the weekend.
Board member Samantha Mannion, who is on the committee leading the search, told the school board Thursday that 373 people have taken the survey so far. The survey was developed by Cooperative Educational Services, a consulting firm hired to help the district find a replacement for Superintendent Alicia Roy, who will step down when her contract expires in June.
Mannion said the firm originally planned to close the survey Friday, but will leave it open until 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
She also told members that the firm expect to have a first draft of a leadership profile developed from the survey and focus groups late next week and to have applicants for the position before Christmas.;
“We are making very good headway and we’re making good time,” Mannion said.
