COMMUNITY FORUMS for

SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH

sponsored by the HPS Board of Education

 

The Superintendent of Hickory Public Schools, Dr. Robbie Adell, has announced his retirement, effective June 30, 2021. Therefore, the HPS Board of Education has begun the search for a new superintendent to lead Hickory Public Schools. The new superintendent will begin July 1, 2021.

The public is invited to attend two “Community Forums for HPS Superintendent Search,” sponsored by the HPS Board of Education. These forums will provide the public with the opportunity to share characteristics and qualities in support of the superintendent search.

The first Community Forum is scheduled for March 29, 2021 at Northview Middle School’s auditorium (302 28th Avenue, NE, Hickory, NC 28601). The one-hour event starts at 5:30 PM. A microphone will be set-up for the public and each person speaking will be provided three minutes to share input.

The second Community Forum is scheduled for April 12, 2021 at Grandview Middle School’s auditorium (451 Catawba Valley Blvd, SE, Hickory, NC 28602). The one-hour event begins at 6:30 PM, immediately following the work-session of the HPS Board of Education. Again, a microphone will be set-up for the public and each person speaking will be provided three minutes to share input.

Health Department guidelines for community safety will be in place for both forums, including the checking of temperatures, required masks and social distancing (unless sitting with family members).

Both forums will be streamed-live on the HPS YouTube link with the link provided on the district website the day of the event:  www.hickoryschools.net

For any member of the community who is unable to attend the Community Forums, comments may be submitted in advance to the following email: hps_sb@hickoryschools.net

Additional information regarding the available leadership role of HPS Superintendent can be found on the district’s homepage: www.hickoryschools.net   There is also a community survey on the district homepage regarding “characteristics and qualities” for the new superintendent.  The survey must be completed no later than midnight, April 15, 2021. Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S99QS6J
