The Caroline County School Board announced today that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications.

The school board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at, and on the home page of the division web site. Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the school board administration office, at each school, and branches of the public library.

In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing:

Date: February 12, 2015
Time: 5:30 p.m.
Location: Caroline Middle School Auditorium

“Hiring a new superintendent is the biggest task facing a school board and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process,” said School Board Chairman George Spaulding. “We hope that parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey or attend the public hearing.”

The school board selected the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to assist the board with the superintendent search.

Caroline County Public Schools (Virginia) will be CLOSED on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, for students and staff. Twelve month employees are on Code Red or take liberal leave.

As scheduled in the 2014-15 School Calendar, Monday, February 16, 2015, will be used as a make-up day for the day missed due to inclement weather on January 14, 2015.

A special meeting of the Caroline County School Board will be held on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. at the School Board Office for the purpose of meeting with the Virginia School Boards Association.
