The first of three public hearings on the search for a new superintendent of schools for Alachua County begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the cafeteria at Hidden Oak Elementary School.
Hearings will allow parents, students and the community at large to comment on what qualities they're looking for in a new superintendent.
Dan Boyd, superintendent for the past nine years, retired Sept. 30, and the School Board soon will begin a nationwide search for his successor.
Forums also scheduled are for Nov. 7 at Metcalfe Elementary School, 1250 NE 18th Ave., and for Nov. 12 at Irby Elementary School, 13505 NW 140th St. in Alachua. Those forums also will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Former Deputy Superintendent of Schools Sandy Hollinger will moderate the hearings.
