superintendent search process. Part of the search process being conducted by the Kansas Association of
School Boards is to host a Characteristic Forum to give community and patrons an opportunity for input.
USD 495 will host the meeting on Thursday, Jan 12, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. at the Larned Middle School Band
Room, 904 Corse St. in Larned.
The time will be spent gathering insights and ideas about the desired traits and characteristics of our new
superintendent. The session takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
The questions will focus on:
- Current strengths of the district;
- Challenges the district is facing;
- Skills, traits and qualities for the new superintendent.
The information provided from patrons and community members will guide our board as we move forward
with the search.
Please plan on attending if possible. We appreciate your help with this important task. Feel free to call the
District Office at 620-285- 3185 with any questions.
