Isle of Wight County School Board Announces Superintendent Search

The Isle of Wight County School Board announced April 5, 2022 that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications. The school board created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which was available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IsleofWightSuperintendentSearch, and on the home page of the division web site.  Hard copies of the survey were also be available at the school board administration offices and at each school. (The survey closed on April 19, 2022; results are shared below.) In addition to the survey, the board held two public hearings:  Tuesday, April 19, 2022, at 6:00pm at Westside Elementary School, 800 W. Main St., Smithfield, VA 23430, and Monday, April 25, 2022 at 6:00pm at Georgie Tyler Middle School, 23320 North Court St., Windsor, VA 23487.

“Hiring a new superintendent is an important task for the school board and we encourage the public to participate in the process of determining qualifications for our next superintendent,” said School Board Chair Tynes.  “We hope all community members will take time to fill out the online survey or attend one of the public hearings.”

The school board selected the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to assist the board with the superintendent search.
