The Board of Education is collecting community feedback to assist with the search for a new superintendent of San Francisco’s public schools.

The school board plans to hire a superintendent by next school year following the departure of Superintendent Richard Carranza in September. The search is being led by Leadership Associates, which put out a survey to collect input from the San Francisco Unified School District community.

“We want to hear from students, staff, parents, and community members about their desired qualities and characteristics for the next superintendent and [want them] to share their thoughts on district strengths and challenges,” school board President Matt Haney said in a statement.

The community feedback will be used to create a profile of the qualities and characteristics sought in a new superintendent, according to the survey.

“The Board is committed to finding a superintendent who shares our district’s values and vision while also bringing the expertise necessary to take our district to the next level,” Haney said.

Take the survey here until Dec. 14.
