Dear Parents/Guardians & Community Members:


On behalf of the Pine-Richland Board of School Directors, I would like to invite you to participate in a focus group discussion regarding the superintendent search to be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013 in the Pine-Richland Middle School Auditorium, 100 Logan Rd. in Gibsonia.


As part of the board's work in conducting a search for the district's next superintendent, we have asked consultants from the Pennsylvania School Board Association to facilitate a number of focus group sessions. 


To encourage candid and open discussion, the board will not be in attendance but will receive a comprehensive report from our consultants. All input will be forwarded to the board for consideration without specific names.  


The purpose of these sessions is to gain a deeper understanding of the perceptions and opinions individuals have about the challenges, issues and needs facing the school district.   


We appreciate the response to the surveys that we received from our community. The information from these surveys and  focus groups will provide us with valuable insights and data that might not be obtained with direct interaction from the board or district. With that in mind, we hope that you will be able to attend the session on Monday.


In addition, we will continue to provide updates to the school community when timely on the status of the superintendent search.

Thank you for your continued service, interest and involvement in the success of the students here at the Pine-Richland School District.
