Selection Work Group Chair Kira Orange Jones says:

Public input and due diligence are critical elements of the search process. This online survey reflects our plan to capture the priorities and concerns of students, parents, advocates, and educators, as everyone in Louisiana will ultimately be impacted in some way by this important hire. The results of the survey will ultimately be distributed to BESE members, reflecting both comprehensive statewide responses, as well as segmented reporting by individual BESE districts.
