The Tuscaloosa City School Board is plowing ahead in its search for a new superintendent in the wake of Paul McKendrick’s resignation last month.

Today, the Alabama Association of School Boards hosted a public forum at the Tuscaloosa Career and Technology Academy to gather input from parents and community members on what they’d like to see in a new superintendent.

City schools parent Jaela Avery said the system is in dire need of a superintendent with the ability to lead, but more parents need to be involved.

“I am very disappointed because I see on social media, and have even talked to a lot of parents who have a lot of complaints and a lot of concerns about our superintendent, but then only four of us show up,” she said.

Tuscaloosa City Schools officials said the community input they got today will be useful as the superintendent search kicks off.
