Community Input for Principal Selection

Euclid Middle School Community,

As part of the comprehensive principal hiring process, we would like your feedback on a short survey.  The information gathered from this survey will be used in formulating questions for potential candidates.  This information will also help in identifying desired leadership qualities the Euclid Middle School staff, students and parents value in a principal and, ultimately, will help guide the final principal selection decision.  
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.  Your input in this process is greatly valued and appreciated.  The survey window will be open now until February 17th.

Principal Site Interview Team

My name is Clay Abla and I am the Director of Secondary Education for Littleton Public Schools.

 As you are aware, Gary Hein, principal of Euclid Middle School will be retiring at the end of this school year. I know you join me in thanking Mr. Hein for his remarkable work and dedication to Euclid Middle School and we wish him the best in his future opportunities.

 The purpose of this communication is to make you aware of the timeline and process that will be implemented to accomplish our goal of completing the search for a new principal for Euclid Middle School.  The attached letter outlines this process. I encourage you to read the letter to understand the timeline that has been established for applications, interviews, and recommendation of finalists to the Superintendent of Schools with eventual approval by the Board of Education.

Parents who are interested in being considered to serve on the site interview team are asked to submit their name and a brief statement describing their interest in and qualifications to serve on the team. Click here to access the application for the site interview team.  Additionally, all parents, students and staff will have the opportunity to provide input into the selection process through an on-line survey that will be posted on the school website beginning February 6th.

Thank you for supporting your child’s education and Euclid Middle School.  Have a great day.
