    All public forums will have a live stream and interactive elements located on this webpage for the community to provide input if they cannot attend in person. 


    For those planning to participate in the initial public forums, either at home or in person, only the following questions will be utilized:


    1. What do you believe are the greatest strengths of the district at this time?
    2. What current and/or future issues are facing the district over the next three to five years? 
    3. What are the personal and professional characteristics you believe are most essential for the Governing Board to consider in screening superintendent candidates?

  • About the Search Firm

    The Phoenix Union selected Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA), a national search firm, to work with the district to facilitate a comprehensive superintendent search process.  HYA was selected among multiple firms responding to the district’s formal RFP following screening and interviews conducted by a district committee which included members of the Governing Board.

    The Governing Board is committed to a transparent process that encourages participation and feedback from internal and external stakeholders across the community to help inform the Board’s selection of the next superintendent.

    Initial Planning Meeting

    On Monday, November 13, 2023 the Governing Board held a special public meeting to begin planning the search process with HYA. This page will be updated soon to reflect process decisions made at that meeting and will also be updated throughout the search process to ensure all stakeholders are well informed.  To view the live stream of the November 13th planning meeting click here: Click here to view the live stream.
