UPDATE: DPSCD’s Board to Host Superintendent Candidates’ Day in the District

Candidate schedules include school visits, community meetings and open interview sessions

DPSCD’s two superintendent finalists, Dr. Nikolai Vitti and Derrick Coleman have 12-hour interview schedules. They will start their day with an overview of the district’s finance and academic departments culminating with an open session interview conducted by the DPSCD Board of Education at 6 p.m. on each of their designated interview dates.

In addition to an overview of the district and the open interview session, the two candidates will have an opportunity to visit schools, meet staff, educators, parents and students. Supplementary public meetings are also scheduled with members of the community including faith-based, labor and business stakeholders. The board is seeking to avail the candidates to as many of the district’s key stakeholders as time will permit.

WHEN:      Wednesday, March 29, 2017 – Dr. Nikolai Vitti
Monday, April 3, 2017 – Derrick Coleman

WHERE:     Please see attached schedules for public meetings

“The board appreciates the community taking an active interest in the search for a permanent superintendent for Detroit Public Schools Community District. We have incorporated the input of hundreds of community members in this process. We will continue the process as scheduled,” said Iris Taylor, DPSCD board president.
