Superintendent Search Update

Hopkins Public Schools has hired School Exec Connect to lead our superintendent search. You can find updates related to our search process on this page.

At the April 4th School Board meeting, the Hopkins School Board selected School Exec Connect to lead its search for the next superintendent. Our goal is to have a superintendent hired and in place by July 1, 2017. We want you to be informed of the process that we will be following as we conduct our superintendent search. School Exec Connect has outlined the search timeline in this letter. 

As stakeholders of Hopkins Public Schools, we would greatly appreciate your input to assist us in making the best selection possible. We will be engaging staff, students, parents and the larger community in a variety of focus groups and information gathering sessions. More information about when these sessions will be held will be shared soon.

There are two ways that you can share your perspective with us. You can either submit your feedback through a confidential survey that is posted on our website, or you can share your opinion in person by attending a community focus group. Please note the survey closes on April 25. The focus group is scheduled for April 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Eisenhower Community Center (1001 Hwy 7, Hopkins) in room 233. The focus group will take no longer than an hour. 

Please keep checking this webpage for the most up-to-date information regarding our superintendent search.
