• Superintendent Search Underway

    The Spotsylvania County School Board is currently conducting a nationwide search for a new superintendent to lead the school division.

    Your input is an important part of the search process. In the coming weeks, GR Recruiting, the superintendent search firm contracted by the School Board, will host town halls for student, staff, parent, and community input as part of this search process. In addition, we are conducting an online survey to help develop the profile that will be used by the search firm in selecting candidates for the School Board to interview for the position of superintendent of schools.

     


    Online Survey  

    The survey opened on April 25, 2022 and will close on May 13, 2022 at Noon. It is available in English and Spanish.
