Letter from the WLCSD Board of Education

Dear Walled Lake Consolidated Schools' Community,

The Board of Education knows that hiring a superintendent is one of the most important tasks that we do. We are committed to finding the best person for the job and invite you to be a part of the process.

We encourage all stakeholders to provide feedback during our superintendent search process. There will be numerous opportunities for each of you to meet with our contracted search firm representative, Mr. Jay Bennett of the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), to share what skills, abilities, and characteristics we should be looking for in our next superintendent.

First, we ask that you take a few minutes to complete the MASB's Superintendent Search Survey. Your feedback will play an extremely important role in the search process.

I want to ensure you that we will conduct a search that is transparent and, most importantly, includes the families, students, staff, and every member of the Walled Lake Consolidated School District community.

Best,

Christopher Titus

President, Walled Lake Consolidated School District Board of Education

Information and updates related to our superintendent search process will be posted to this page regularly.
