Below you will find a link to the Valley View Superintendent Search Profile Report, as well as remarks from Dr. Leone. Dr. Leone is with K-12 Business Consulting which is the firm Valley View hired to conduct this survey. Thank you again for all who participated in the form of a survey or focus group.
This report represents the common themes K-12 Business Consulting compiled from 89 survey respondents and 65 staff members, citizens, and high school students who attended one of the seven focus group sessions on January 23rd, 2018. On pages 2-7, the common themes are summarized separately by sub-groups (Board members, administrators, teachers and support staff members, parents, community members, and high school students), and overall consistent themes for all of the sub-groups combined.
On page 8, you will see the top 10 desired characteristics of the new superintendent for each sub-group, then you will see on page 9 a summary for of the sub-groups combined pertaining to the the five most important desired characteristics of the new superintendent and the five least important desired characteristics of the new superintendent. On page 10, you will see conclusions offered by K-12 pertaining to what we have learned.
While it is normal for sub-groups to have similar opinions on the topics at hand, it is also normal for such profile reports to reveal differences of opinion. The profile contains what people told K-12 on multiple occasions, and may offer common themes that will be a surprise to the board.
