The Rochester School Department has engaged the New England School Development Council

(NESDEC) to assist them in the search process for a new Superintendent of Schools.
An integral part of the process involves parent and community participation in an online survey.
The survey is designed to obtain participant input about the attributes, experience, and
knowledge that the new superintendent should possess. The survey also provides an
opportunity for participants to identify immediate tasks which the new superintendent should
Please access the survey at:
The survey will be open from now until Monday February 26, 2024
All comments from the online survey are considered anonymous. NESDEC will organize
responses by group (administrators, staff, parents, community members, students, etc.). The
responses will be provided to the School Board in a community needs assessment report, which
will be used to inform the Successful Candidate Profile.
The Rochester School Board appreciates the public’s involvement in the Superintendent Search
process and looks forward to hearing community members’ views.
