Wichita Public Schools are taking what officials call a "first step" in asking for community feedback in the USD 259 superintendent search. On Tuesday morning, the school district posted a superintendent search survey on its website.
The survey is four pages long asking parents questions and allowing for further comments.
School district spokesperson Susan Arensman says the questions follow three key topics the Board of Education want to focus on. The topics are the direction of Wichita Public Schools, upcoming challenges and priorities, and characteristics of the new superintendent.
Some parents and grandparents thought the survey was too basic with questions asking things like whether people thought student achievement was important.
