The Mooresville Graded School District Board of Education has contracted with the N.C. School Boards Association (NCSBA) to help facilitate its search for the next superintendent of MGSD.
The board is seeking direct input from interested students, parents, other members of the community, and staff to help shape the search process and to assist in defining the characteristics, experience, and skills desired in the next MGSD superintendent.
The board invites students, parents, and other members of the community to participate in a community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the superintendent search survey link on the MGSD website at https://www.mgsd.k12.nc.us/about-us/superintendent-search-information. All surveys must be completed by Friday, April 29, with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at the board meeting on May 10.
In addition, all MGSD employees will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the superintendent search survey will be communicated via school system e-mail. All surveys must be completed by Friday, April 29, with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at the board meeting on May 10.
Statements from Community Groups and Organizations
In addition to input received from the surveys, local groups, and organizations may submit written statements regarding the leadership qualities that they consider important in the next superintendent. Such statements should be submitted directly to NCSBA via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Such statements should be received no later than Friday, April 29.
Students, parents, other members of the community, and staff may sign up to address the board during a special public comment period that will take place at 5:30 p.m. prior to the upcoming regular board meeting at 6 p.m. on May 10. All individuals and groups must sign up to speak before the special public comment period begins and must otherwise comply with applicable board policy.

Only comments regarding the superintendent search will be allowed during this special public comment period.
