Community Participation
The decision comes after a six month process, which involved a lot of community participation and feedback.

This fall and winter, hundreds of Boulder Valley School District students, parents, employees and community members have had the opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the attributes they would like to see in our next superintendent and the issues he or she will need to address once hired.

The following are the qualities that they desired most:
• Is willing to listen to input, but is a decision maker.
• Possesses the leadership skills required to respond to the opportunities and challenges presented by an ethnically and culturally diverse community.
• Inspires trust, has high levels of self-confidence and optimism, and models high standards of integrity and personal performance.
• Is a strong communicator; speaking, listening and writing.
• Has experience recruiting and maintaining exceptional staff for the District and schools.
• Is able to build consensus and commitment among individuals and groups with emphasis on parental involvement.
• Is able to delegate authority appropriately while maintaining accountability.
• Has previous experience that will benefit the long-term financial health of District.
• Is strongly committed to a “student first” philosophy in all decisions.
• Has experience in the selection and implementation of educational priorities consistent with the interests and needs of students, staff, Board and community.
