In January 2018, the Osseo School Board invited students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members to attend a community meeting to provide input regarding the qualities that are most important for a new superintendent.

Input was/will be used in two ways:

  • To identify the top qualities stakeholders are looking for in a new superintendent to assist in the recruitment of candidates.
  • To inform the School Board’s decision making as it selects a new superintendent.

At the community meetings, participants discussed four key questions in small group conversations. Their perspectives were documented and shared with the school board and search firm. The four key questions were:

  1. What qualities of a superintendent are most important to you?
  1. What types of experience do you think are most important for the new superintendent to bring to Osseo Area Schools?
  1. What are your greatest concerns about education in Osseo Area Schools and why?
  1. What do you think is working well in Osseo Area Schools?

Free childcare for ages 4-12 was offered to those who reserved it in advance.
