Provide Your Thoughts On The Next Commissioner of Education—Take The Survey!
A public online survey has been posted by the Colorado State Board of Education that provides an opportunity for all Coloradans to assist in the selection process for the next commissioner of education.
The survey is available at the following link: http://www.cde.state.co.us/cdeboard/commissionersearch.htm
Respondents are asked to select the five areas (out of a list of 20 suggested topics) that they believe are the most important for the next commissioner to emphasize in his or her work. The online form also provides an opportunity to submit other suggestions on areas that may be of importance.
The survey will be posted through Wednesday, Jan. 26. The feedback from this survey will be considered by the state board in finalizing a job description, which is expected to be posted on Feb. 17.
The state board has established a timeline that calls for a new commissioner to be appointed in May and ready to start by July 1.
