    On Oct. 16, HYA presented the Leadership Profile, utilizing feedback from the forums, focus groups and community survey. HYA met with 109 stakeholders and surveyed 663 members of the community, parents, staff and students. The results of the meetings and survey helped to form a candidate profile that HYA will use as they seek qualified candidates to apply for the position. 

    Thank you for those of you that participated in the HYA meetings and survey!

    Search firm interviews were held the week of July 9. A full discussion regarding the four firms interviewed will be had during the July 17 study session at the BPS Education and Administration Center.

    July 17 Agenda 

    At the June 5th Board meeting, the Board named John Silveri as Interim Superintendent. Mr. Silveri retired from his position as Superintendent of the Waterford School District in 2015 and has since acted both as the Interim Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources as well as the Interim Deputy Superintendent for School Administration here in Birmingham Public Schools. We believe that as an experienced educational leader and someone who knows our community and culture, Mr. Silveri will provide a seamless leadership transition for our District in the year ahead.

    The Board released a request for proposals to a range of national and local superintendent search firms, and four different proposals were received. The Board hopes to select a firm at the July Board meeting.
