Focus Group Meetings

The process of selecting outstanding School and District leaders is an inclusive process and one that involves the efforts of the entire Somerville community. The decision is not based on credentials alone. It is a decision based on a complex array of factors, but none more important than listening to those who know what good leadership means to them and what success looks like when all goes well. If you were unable to participate in recent Focus Group Meetings for the Director of Special Education and the Principal at the John F. Kennedy School positions, you can still be part of this important process by completing an online Focus Group Input form at Thank you for considering being part of this important process.
