CASD to Hold Superintendent Search Focus Groups for Community

In an effort to solicit community input on the search for a new Superintendent, the Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) will hold focus group meetings that are open to the general public. The focus groups will be held at the following dates, times, and locations:

  • Monday, September 10th, 7:30 PM – 8:15 PM at the Chambersburg Area Middle School North Auditorium
  • Tuesday, September 11th, 7:30 PM – 8:15 PM at the Chambersburg Area Middle School South Auditorium

The meeting sessions will give those in attendance an opportunity to engage in discussion about the qualities they believe are most important in a new Superintendent. The District encourages all Chambersburg community members to attend one of the events and to share their voices in this important process.

The focus groups will be conducted by consulting firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA), who have been contracted to assist in the Superintendent search on behalf of the CASD school board. HYA will utilize the results of the focus groups to help guide school board members in interviewing candidates.       

In addition to focus groups for the general public, the District will seek the input of local business leaders, government leadership, PTA/PTO representatives, community organizations, and CASD students and staff.

For questions or comments related to the upcoming focus group sessions, please feel free to call the Superintendent’s Office at 717-261-3301 or to reach out to the School board member for your region.
