The survey concludes by asking for additional comments and any recommendations you might have for good candidates.

“As you respond, please remember that all characteristics listed are desirable. Please indicate which characteristics you feel are ‘most important’ for City Schools of Decatur,” the reminder from CSD says.

There are also two additional community forums regarding the superintendent search. The forums will be held at the Beacon Municipal Center, located at 125 Electric Avenue in Decatur.
