White Oak ISD Staff, Parents, and Community Members,
As you are aware, WOISD Trustees have employed Texas Association of School Boards Executive Search Services to facilitate the search for the next Superintendent of WOISD. One component of the search process is to solicit input from staff, parents, and community members as to the Qualifications and Characteristics desired in the next Superintendent. Your input is requested and can be submitted via the web-based survey accessed on the WOISD homepage or by clicking HERE. The survey not only asks for professional and personal Qualifications and Characteristics desired in the next Superintendent, but also inquires as to what are the strengths of WOISD (what’s good) and what concerns or challenges face WOISD (what needs attention). The survey will be open through Sunday, October 20.
- Is the survey anonymous?
- Yes, all responses go directly to TASB offices in Austin. No one at WOISD has access to any responder’s identifiable information.
- What happens to survey responses?
- All responses will be delivered to WOISD Trustees in a report format. Trustees will see all responses. The new Superintendent will also be given a copy of the report with all responses. This is very useful information to the new Superintendent as it will provide valuable information on where he/she needs to focus their time and energy.
Let me encourage you to take the time to complete the survey. It really is useful information for TASB ESS and your WOISD Trustees to utilize during the search process.
A Parent Orientation page has been added to our WOPS blog. Please see this page for all three grade-level parent orientation presentations. Our teachers have some valuable information they would like for you to have available. Please click on the tab at the top of the blog labeled Parent Orientation. Also, each teacher has added the presentation to their classroom blog.
