Meetings set in search for TTSD superintendent

The search is on for the next head of Tigard-Tualatin schools, and the district is looking for the community’s help in deciding.

The district is holding three days of meetings with parents, students and other members of the community this month as it searches for a new superintendent.

Former Tigard-Tualatin Superintendent Rob Saxton left the district in the summer to run the state’s public schools system. The district hired former Oregon City Superintendent Roger Rada to serve as interim until a permanent replacement could be found in time for next school year.

The district hopes to interview candidates starting in February, with a new superintendent announced by March 4.

The district has scheduled meetings Nov. 27, 28 and 29 to talk to a variety of groups about the skills and needs the next superintendent will need to have.

Along with three nights of open public meetings, the district is also hearing from district staff, and students at Tigard and Tualatin high schools.

The public meetings will be held at 7 p.m. at Fowler Middle School on Tuesday, Nov. 27, Twality Middle School on Wednesday, Nov. 28 and Hazelbrook Middle School on

Thursday, Nov. 29.

A public meeting with members of the business community is scheduled for 7:30 a.m., Wednesday, Nov, 28.

The district is also setting up an online survey starting Nov. 26 for people who aren’t able to attend any of the meetings, and accepting applications for people interested in screening and interviewing potential applicants.

Applications to serve on screening and interview committees will be available at the district office starting Nov. 26.
