    Saint Paul Public Schools is searching for a new superintendent and we need your feedback.

    The Board of Education represents the public’s interests and values in district decisions and is responsible for hiring a new superintendent. Your feedback is critical to identify the leadership qualities most important to the community, and to help the Board choose the next superintendent for Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS).

    You're Invited to Attend a Community Meeting
    One way the Board is gathering input is through four community meetings. Each meeting will include a short introduction followed by smaller group discussions of 10-12 people. A facilitator will help lead the discussion, ask questions and gather feedback to help inform the search process. Language-specific groups will meet in English, Hmong, Somali, Karen and Spanish. Light refreshments and childcare will also be provided.
