Community invited to provide input on FWCS superintendent search

The public is invited to provide feedback that will be used as the Fort Wayne Community Schools Board begins its search superintendent to succeed the retiring Wendy Robinson.

Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, the firm hired to assist the Board in the search process, will host three community meetings to collect input on the current state of Fort Wayne Community Schools and what the Board should consider regarding the future of the district and a new superintendent.

Meetings will be held:

• Tuesday, Dec. 3, 6 p.m., South Side High School, 3601 S. Calhoun St.

• Wednesday, Dec. 4, 1 p.m., Family and Community Engagement Center, 230 E. Douglas Ave.

• Thursday, Dec. 5, 6 p.m., Northrop High School, 7001 Coldwater Road

Those not able to attend one of the meetings can fill out a short survey by Nov. 29 at https://fortwayneschools.org/superintendent-search.

The Board is searching for a new superintendent to lead the District’s nearly 30,000 students and 4,000 employees. Robinson is retiring after 17 years in June 2020 after working at FWCS for 47 years.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana.
