Focus Group Schedule and Survey Link

March 2022

As you are aware, we have begun the process of searching for a new principal of Barrington High School.  I have engaged the services of the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) to assist in this important task. 

 Dr. Carolyn Burke, a search consultant with NESDEC, will be assisting me throughout the search process.  As part of the process, NESDEC will be conducting an online focus group via ZOOM .  

These virtual focus groups are an important part of the process because they are designed to obtain your input regarding the attributes, experiences, and desired goals for a new principal.
