Manassas City Public Schools (MCPS) is on the hunt for a new superintendent.
The current superintendent, Catherine Magouyrk, recently announced her retirement, which is effective June 30, 2018.
“Hiring a new superintendent is the biggest task a school board will face and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process. We hope that parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey or attend the scheduled public hearing,” stated Manassas School Board Chairman Tim Demeria in a release.
More on the search for a new superintendent, from a release:
The School Board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ManassasSearch, and will be posted on the home page of the division web site. Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the central office, each school office, and upon request.
In addition to the survey, the Board will hold a public hearing:
