It is with sad hearts that those at Craig County Public Schools are saying goodbye to Jeanette Warwick, the current superintendent.
The job of superintendent entails many important decisions and many hours of research and planning to keep a school system functioning for the students.
Warwick has done just that, including getting the school and students through one of the most difficult times schools have seen, the COVID-19 pandemic.
She has given her notice and the Craig County School Board announced May 1 that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications.
“The school board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/craigsearch and on the home page of the division web site,” Chairman Trace Bellassai shared. “Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the school board administration offices and at each school.”
In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing on May 23, at 5:30 p.m. at Craig County High School.
“The appointment of a new superintendent is one of the most important responsibilities entrusted to a school board, and it is our priority to ensure that the public has an active role in this selection process,” Bellassai. “We urge parents, staff, and residents to participate by completing the survey or attending the public hearing.”
The school board selected the Virginia School Boards Association to assist the board with the superintendent search.
Teachers have added that much thought and prayer are going into this search for their new administrator and Craig residents are encouraged to be involved in this important decision.
