Dear Romulus Community, 

Your thoughts and feedback matter! Through the search process, the Board of Education is committed to gathering comprehensive information to support a successful superintendent search. One way feedback will be collected is through the Superintendent Search Survey. The Board of Education asks that students, staff, alumni, families, and community members please provide feedback on the expectations and priorities for the next Superintendent.

To continue to support this great momentum, the Board of Education has extended the survey deadline for two days. 

The Superintendent Search Survey can be accessed until February 17, 2024, at or at

Your voice matters, your community's voice matters and your Board of Education values your feedback!

Thank you,
The Superintendent Search Consultant Team
