School board seeks public input on superintendent search

The Moore County Board of Education has retained the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) to help facilitate its search for the next superintendent of Moore County Schools (MCS). To that end, the Board of Education is seeking direct input from interested students, parents, members of the community and staff to help shape the search process and to assist in defining the characteristics, experience and skills desired in the next superintendent. 

Students, parents and other members of the community can participate in a community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the “School Board Starts Superintendent Search” story under “District News” at ncmcs.org. A direct link to the survey can be found here.

In addition, all MCS employees will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the superintendent search survey will be communicated via district email. 

Survey submissions must be completed by Friday, Feb. 25, 2022, with results to be compiled, summarized and presented to the Board of Education at the board work session on March 7, 2022.

In addition to input received through community and staff surveys, local groups and organizations may submit written statements regarding the leadership qualities that they consider important in the next superintendent. Statements should be submitted directly to NCSBA via email at [email protected]. Statements should be received no later than Friday, Feb. 25, 2022.

Students, parents, members of the community and staff may also address the board during the public comment period at the upcoming regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, Feb. 14, 2022. All individuals and groups must sign up to speak before the meeting begins and must otherwise comply with applicable board policy.

Superintendent Dr. Bob Grimesey is set to retire on Feb. 1. Dr. Tim Locklair, the district’s Chief Officer for Academic and Student Support Services, is the interim superintendent for Moore County Schools effective Feb. 1.
