With less than a week remaining in Superintendent Mike Looney’s tenure in Williamson County, the Williamson County Board of Education is asking for public input to establish selection criteria for the new Williamson County Schools Superintendent.
The selection process for the the next superintendent is beginning, and the School Board has posted a SurveyMonkey online survey about the position. The deadline for completing the survey is noon Thursday, May 16, 2019.
The short survey provides a list of qualities that would be valuable in a school system leader, and asks respondents to choose 10 qualities from the list.
The list includes statements such as “Possesses good judgment and common sense along with the ability to think clearly and independently, relying on facts instead of prejudices;” “demonstrates high business and educational ability and leadership;” and “Demonstrated ability to define and maintain high standards for competence and conduct of employees and academic achievement of students.”
Looney’s last day is May 20, before he leaves for a new position as Superintendent of Fulton County Schools in Georgia.
Deputy Superintendent and General Counsel Jason Golden has been named Interim Superintendent effective May 21.
