Eugene 4J frames the search for a permanent superintendent

The Eugene 4J School District is starting its search for a permanent superintendent with a series of online public forums.

Cydney Vandercar has served as 4J’s interim superintendent since spring, 2020. The board recently appointed a search firm, Alma Advisory Group, which is conducting the forums as well as an online survey.

4J Chief of Staff Kerry Delf told KLCC, “What that survey and what those forums are looking for is people’s thoughts about the school district, about the school district leadership, and what strengths and qualities and priorities are needed for the district and the district superintendent.”

Delf said Alma will also meet with district staff and other stakeholders, including students. The public can take the survey any time, or attend one of four remaining online sessions. The district plans to name a permanent superintendent this spring.

For more information, see the district's website, here.

Community Forums are scheduled as follows:

Karen Richards joined KLCC as a volunteer reporter in 2012, and became a freelance reporter at the station in 2015. In addition to news reporting, she’s contributed to several feature series for the station, earning multiple awards for her reporting.
