SB)--Parents, teachers, support professionals and community members are invited to assist members of the Enid Board of Education as they search for the district’s next superintendent.  Recently, board members approved a partnership with the Oklahoma State School Boards Association to help facilitate the superintendent search. The new superintendent will succeed Dr. Darrell Floyd, who will retire from the position after nine years with the district.  As part of the process, the Board have launched an online community survey located on the district’s website – enidpublicschools.org/superintendentsurvey. Board members invite the public to provide input on the qualities and characteristics they would like to see in their next superintendent. Parents, students, staff and community members can access the online survey that will be available until March 31.
