Public Will Have Opportunity To Comment On Lufkin ISD Superintendent Hiring Process

by Stuart Burson

The search for a new Lufkin superintendent is heating up. Consultants hired by the district started meeting with 60 pre-selected community members Wednesday afternoon. The consultants are getting input from them on the hire. The goal is to find out what type of person the community wants to replace outgoing superintendent David Sharp when he leaves next year.

Meetings will continue Wednesday morning. There will be an open school board meeting Thursday at noon. That meeting will give the public a chance to make comments about the selection process.

We spoke with one parent who has the ideal candidate in mind.

"[The ideal candidate would be] someone who is accessible and responsive to the teachers and the parents, [and] visible on the campus to the kids. Even the young students like to see the superintendent on their campus," says Sheila Skelton, president of Brandon Elementary's PTK Association.

The search consultants will develop a profile of the ideal candidate based on the feedback received. That profile should be ready in January.
