ARPS Superintendent Community Sessions

Thank you to the Amherst Education Foundation for sharing this important information about the ARPS Superintendent search!

What is important to you when it comes to the next Amherst Regional Public School superintendent?

McPherson & Jacobson (M&J), the executive search firm for the superintendent search, will be holding a series of community input sessions between Jan 16 and 27, at which participants will be asked to address the following four topics:

  1. Tell them the good things about your community.

  2. Tell them the good things about your school district.

  3. What are the issues in the district that the incoming superintendent should be aware of?

  4. What characteristics should the new superintendent have to be successful?

M&J will summarize the input from all of the sessions into a report for the 20-member Search Committee, and for the Regional and Union 26 School Committees.

There will be six sessions open to the public, including a Spanish language session, and sessions which focus on Special Education, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students and families, and LGBTQIA+ students and families. Community members are invited to join any of the public sessions. Most sessions will be virtual, with one in-person session.

Visit for a schedule of the sessions, as well as updated info about the search.

To provide another way of giving input, an online survey will be launched near the end of January with the same four questions.----------
