A Message from District 7 Board President Laurent

Posted: October 11, 2018

On Tuesday, October 9, 2018, the Illinois Association of School Boards on-line survey was sent to the Board of Education, staff, and district parents to solicit input on priorities regarding the person to be sought as superintendent. There is also a community link posted on the district’s webpage and Facebook site.

This survey identifies traits/skills needed for educational leader success. Stakeholder groups will be compared for congruence, and this information will be shared at an upcoming open meeting with the Board of Education. Survey deadline is October 18.

Starting on October 9, 2018 and continuing through October 22, 2018, stakeholder sessions are being conducted within the district for certified staff, and input from support staff. The Illinois Association School Board consultant acts as an unbiased interviewer and facilitator to gather perceptions of district administration and staff regarding the characteristics and skills to be sought in a new superintendent.

This input will be compared across stakeholder groups (staff and community), and presented to the Board of Education in an open meeting. The information aids in the development of search criteria, as well as a resource for the Board of Education preparation for interviews of finalists. The new superintendent can use this report as an orientation document as well.

The vacancy announcement/brochure is being developed from the data received from the district. This is a work-in-progress; ultimately this will aid in publicizing the position. It will include general information of the district and surrounding area, information on the application process, the financial structure of the district, and members of the Board of Education.

Blueprint for Excellence Report:
District 7 School Safety and Security Enhancements for 2018-2019

At the October 9, 2018, Board of Education meeting, the administration presented to the Board and community the third in a series of updates about the many improvements within the District and for its students made possible through the receipt of Prop E funds. Without these critical funds, curriculum, technology, and school security improvements would not have been possible. Just as important, the passage of Prop E has the District on a path to financial stability as it prepares to pay down a significant portion of its over $5.3 million Education Fund debt by June 30, 2019.

Online Superintendent Search Survey (Community)

Posted: October 9, 2018

Online Superintendent Search Survey
Community Members Only (Non-Parents and Non-Employees)

Parents and employees will receive a separate email containing a password and link to access the parent and/or employee surveys.

The Edwardsville CUSD 7 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process.

The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all board members, all staff, all parents and community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position.

The survey can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MXR2VLT

Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.
