The Beaverton School District School Board will be selecting a new superintendent to lead our district. Superintendent Don Grotting will be retiring in June 2022. We want to thank him for his years of service and dedication to our district's staff and students.

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey developed by the consultant assisting the School Board in the search for a new superintendent. We appreciate your time! However, we did receive feedback that some people found that survey to be too long, confusing and cumbersome.

We want to ensure that everyone is able to participate who wants to provide feedback. Therefore, we've created a supplemental survey that can be completed in less than 2 minutes. It also provides space for you to include any other information that you feel relevant.

The supplemental survey is open until Tuesday, November 30 at 5 p.m. Again, thank you for your participation!
