Focus Groups: Your Input is Needed!
‚ÄčAll Chester Upland School District parents/community/stakeholders are invited to take part in a focus group (small discussion group) about the search for our new Superintendent. The focus group should last no longer than one and a half hours.


The focus group will provide an opportunity for you to 1) find out more about the search process and 2) give input into key areas to assist in finding the ideal candidate for our next Superintendent. Your voice is important in this process; your views will be used during the course of the interviews to help zero in on what you want to see in our new district leader.
