Parents and Staff - The PTA Exec. Comm. received a number of emails from interested parents willing to volunteer as the FDES Parent Representative on the Interview Panel for Paula's backfill/our new Principal. We'll accept volunteer names up until 8am tomorrow (Weds.) to be entered into a lottery drawing on Weds., 6/22 at 10am. Almir Bekric, the FDES Head Custodian, has volunteered to randomly draw the name of one person to serve as our FDES Parent Representative.
What do we KNOW about the role/responsibilities of the Parent Rep.? We know the Interview Panel will interview candidates for the Principal position on June 30th.
We reached out to multiple parents that have served as the Parent Rep. for prior Principal interviews at multiple schools and received the following feedback:
---The interviews could span the entire day (depending on the number of applicants)
---You will be limited to asking a certain list of questions, but can ask your own follow-up questions based on the applicant's response
---You may not see applications or resumes until 30 minutes before the first interview
---There may not be time to discuss likes/dislikes or pro/cons for the applicants amongst the panel, the panel may call for a vote of the applicants immediately following the last interview
LCPS Administration has the final say
If you are interested in serving as the FDES Parent Representative on the Interview Panel on June 30th, please send me (Marissa) an email at email@example.com.
