Fayetteville Public Schools will soon hire a new superintendent, and district officials are seeking input from the public as part of the process to identify that new leader.

Current school superintendent John L. Colbert plans to retire in June 2023 at the conclusion of the school year.

The district will host a public input session at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at the Ramay Junior High School cafeteria to gather information on the qualifications and skills locals would like to see in the new superintendent.

Officials are also seeking input via an online survey on desired characteristics of the new leader, as well as an evaluation of current stakeholder perceptions of the district.

Consulting firm GR Recruiting is assisting with the search, and will lead the efforts to gather public input.

The public input session at Ramay is open to the public, and no RSVP is required.
