OCHS Principal Search
The OCHS Principal Selection Committee is seeking feedback and suggestions from various stakeholder groups. Surveys have been developed for students, staff, and parents to complete. Parents of current OCHS students and incoming freshmen for 2015-2016 are asked to take a few moments and answer a short anonymous survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OCHParents. The committee will review each response and use the information from the surveys to shape the interview and selection process. Paper copies of the surveys are also available in the school office. Parents are asked to finish the survey by March 31.
The OCHS SBDM Council met Friday, March 13 to continue work on the principal selection process. The committee used time at the March 13th meeting to hammer out the criteria that they feel should govern the principal selection process and to plan how to garner stakeholder input. The committee has created three stakeholder surveys (staff, parent, student) that will be administered and then used to fine-tune the selection criteria and help craft interview questions and tasks. Surveys will be administered in the very near future.
At the next meeting scheduled for March 27, the committee will focus on screening candidates and finalizing the interview process to be used. Currently, the committee is on schedule to complete their work by April 20.
Please contact Anita Davis, Chief Academic Officer, if you have questions regarding the process.
