Weldon City Schools

The Weldon City Board of Education has hired the N.C. School Boards Association to help facilitate its search for the next superintendent of the Weldon City Schools. To that end, the board is seeking direct input from interested students, parents, other members of the community, and staff to help shape the search process and to assist in defining the qualities and characteristics desired in the next WCS superintendent.

Community Survey

The board invites students, parents, and other members of the community to participate in a community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the superintendent search survey link on the main WCS webpage: www.weldoncityschools.org. All surveys must be completed by Dec. 7, with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at a board meeting subsequent to that date. Paper copies of the survey may be obtained from and returned to Kitty Thomason, Executive Administrative Assistant, Weldon City Schools, at Weldon City Schools Central Office, located at 301 Mulberry Street, Weldon, NC 27890.

Staff Survey

In addition, all employees of WCS will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the superintendent search survey will be communicated via school system e-mail.

Statements from Community Groups and Organizations

In addition to input received from the surveys, local groups and organizations may submit written statements regarding the leadership qualities that they consider important in the next superintendent. Such statements should be submitted to Nancy Fountain Black via mail at NCSBA, 7208 Falls of Neuse Road, Suite 301, Raleigh, NC 27615, via e-mail at nblack@ncsba.org or via fax at 919-841-4020. These statements should be received no later than Dec. 7.

Students, parents, other members of the community and staff also may sign up to address the board during the public comment period at any upcoming regularly scheduled board meeting. For those wishing to address the board, email thomasonk@weldonk12.org or call 252-536-4821 Ext. 238.
