NORWALK, Conn. – The Norwalk Board of Education on Tuesday will begin reviewing the results of the superintendent search outreach meetings, which were held with parents and residents last month.

According to Chairman Michael Lyons, the school board will discuss the results and possibly vote on the profile of what type of superintendent the city hopes to hire.

Additionally, the board will review the schedule in the hopes that a new superintendent is in place before summer.

The profile created by the results of the outreach meetings will be used by PROACT Search, an Illinois-based consulting firm the board hired to help with the search, to screen candidates.

The board established a 10-member search committee in January, led by Norwalk Community College President David Levinson. That group held seven meetings to gather input on what characteristics the community wants in a new superintendent.

Norwalk’s superintendent search became a necessity after the resignation last summer of Susan Marks, who stepped down after a $4 million shortfall was discovered in the budget. She was replaced on an interim basis by Tony Daddona, who was the city’s head of curriculum.

Tuesday’s board meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers in City Hall, 125 East Ave.
