Dear Ellsworth School Department Interested Community,
The Ellsworth School Department is in the process of searching for a superintendent of our schools. This process should be as thorough as possible, and it consists of many different aspects. One important element of the selection process is to solicit input from the public. A quick survey is therefore provided for you to contribute to this important responsibility.
As you look over a list of common leadership characteristics, you are asked to select the four (4) most important attributes which you believe a superintendent in Ellsworth should possess in his or her role as an educational leader. This survey is completely anonymous, and should only take a few minutes of your time.
On behalf of the Ellsworth School Department, the school board thanks you for providing your input to the search process. We always appreciate hearing from the community. Again, thank you, Kelly Mckenney School Board Chair

On March 11, 2021, the President signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The American Rescue Plan funds have been allocated to districts to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. As part of receiving funds, the Ellsworth School Department must create a plan for use of the funds and give the public an opportunity to provide input in the development of its plan. We want your input on how to utilize the funds to best support our students.
