Alamance-Burlington Board of Education Launches Search for New Superintendent

  • On January 11, the Alamance-Burlington Board of Education formally initiated its search for a new superintendent to replace the district’s former superintendent, Dr. Bruce Benson, who departed on December 31, 2021. 

    At the Board work session on January 11, representatives from the national search firm, BWP Associates, presented board members with an overview of their proposed search process, including a draft timeline for the board to consider and a community survey and citizen input process.

    “There is no more important decision our Board will make than selecting the right superintendent for our school district and community engagement will be a very important part of this process,” said Sandy Ellington-Graves, School Board Chair. "A critical first step is to engage our community in helping our Board identify important characteristics we should consider for our next superintendent,” she continued.

    Dr. Wayne Harris and Dr. Kevin Castner from BWP Associates outlined their objectives for the public engagement process that will involve the entire community:

    • To identify the strengths, needs, and issues in ABSS in order to recruit the best slate of candidates for the position.
    • To be able to describe ABSS strengths, needs and issues to the recruited candidates.
    • To engage and build community understanding and support for the search.

    The Board of Education, with assistance from BWP Associates, will schedule a series of community engagement sessions over the next few weeks and launch an online community survey to gather public input. BWP Associates will then compile information received from the community engagement process and present a draft profile of preferred leadership characteristics for the next superintendent at the February Board of Education meeting.

    Once the timeline is established, all superintendent search information will be available for review on this webpage.
