Survey and Focus Groups for Superintendent Search

  • The superintendent search has concluded its “engagement” phase in which the search committee solicited feedback and input from the Newton community to help identify and select the next superintendent for our district. The feedback obtained from the survey and focus groups will assist the School Committee in understanding your perspective as candidates are recruited, screened, and interviewed for the position.

Online Survey - Open from November 7 - 21, 2022

In-Person and Virtual Focus Groups - November 17-20, 2022

  • The Newton Public Schools Superintendent Search Committee conducted a series of in-person and virtual focus groups designed to solicit perceptions of the district and its services to students, staff, and families. Participants were asked for input on what they consider to be the most effective characteristics for the district's next superintendent. 

    Several dates and times were offered for all stakeholders from November 17th - 20th. Focus groups were conducted virtually and in person.
