Allentown School District Families & Community,

As you may be aware, the Allentown School District School Board has initiated a search for a successor Superintendent of Schools.  To assist and counsel the Board through this process, we have retained the services of Hazard, Young Attea & Associates (HYA), a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards in identifying and recruiting executive-level educational leaders.

There are four phases to the HYA search process.  Those phases are engagement, recruitment, selection, and transition.  The engagement phase consists of designing and planning a process of engaging the Board and stakeholders through interviews, online surveys, and focus groups. Information from these interactions will assist the Board in developing a leadership profile and selection criterion that match the priorities of our community and that meet the unique needs of the students who are served through the Allentown School District. This disciplined, inclusive, and research-based approach will be designed to ensure all stakeholders have an opportunity to be part of the search process and will provide valuable feedback about the school district that will assist the search firm in better understanding our district in the broader marketplace.

We invite you to be a part of this community engagement process by attending the focus group Zoom session on Tuesday, June 22 at 6 PM. Register in advance for this webinar:

Another way to participate is through the community stakeholder survey.  Please offer your input by clicking the link to the survey below, available in English and Spanish.  Also, we highly encourage you to share this link with friends, neighbors, and family members in the Allentown community.   



We look forward to and encourage community involvement in the engagement phase of the search process. It is our intent to keep the process transparent through updates on the district website and the community information avenues that are currently in place.
