AASB to hold community meetings to help in superintendent search

The Alabama Association of School Boards will be holding community meetings June 7-8 to help assist in its search for the next superintendent of the Escambia County School System.

Former Superintendent John Knott announced his retirement in late April.

According to a release, the community meetings are being held to gather information from the community and employees about what they would like to see in the next superintendent.

The meetings will be held at Escambia County High School on June 7 at 5:30 p.m.; Flomaton High School on June 8 at noon; and W.S. Neal High School on June 8 at 5:30 p.m.

Each meeting will last about an hour.

Additionally, the AASB has launched an online survey to allow employees, parents, students and local residents to share ideas about the skills the next supintendent will need in order to continue to build in the system’s success, according to a release.
