As part of the district's search for a new superintendent, Quaker Valley leaders are asking the community for input.

Community members and district staff have two options to provide feedback: through a digital survey and through a series of input sessions.

Daytime sessions will be offered at Quaker Valley High School from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and at the central administration office in Leetsdale from 3 to 4:30 p.m. March 8; Osborne Elementary School, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 14; Edgeworth Elementary School, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 15; Quaker Valley Middle School, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 16.

During the daytime sessions, district staff and community members are able to meet with one-on-one with a member of the executive search team.

An evening session will be available at Quaker Valley Middle School from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 8.

The sessions will be conducted by members of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit's Executive Search Committee.

Board members in February approved a $3,000 contract with the AIU's Human Resource Division to lead the search to replace the district's current leader Heidi Ondek, who announced in January her plans to step down as superintendent .

District leaders say the survey and sessions are open to everybody in the community.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
