DPS #61 Superintendent Search

 Superintendent Search


The Board of Education of Decatur Public Schools is seeking a replacement for Co-Interim Superintendents Michael Dugan and Bobbi Williams. 

Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA) has been hired by the Board of Education to assist with the search. 

On December 14 & 15, 2016, HYA interviewed several focus groups that consisted of business and community leaders, community members, DPS staff, DPS students, DPS parents and each member of the Board of Education individually. The purpose of the meetings was to gather input and provide the desired characteristics and skills they would like to see in the next superintendent. Additionally, an online survey was available as another way for the community to provide input.


HYA collected this information and presented the data to the Board of Education at the January 5, 2017 Open Focus Workshop / Work Session. Below are links to the documents shared with the Board of Education.
