Community Stakeholder Survey Opens January 9, 2023

As you may be aware, the District School Board of Collier County has initiated a search for a new Superintendent of Schools. To assist and counsel the Board through this process, the District has retained the services of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA), a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards in identifying and recruiting executive level educational leaders.

There will be four phases to the HYA search process. Those phases are engagement, recruitment, selection, and transition. The engagement phase consists of designing and planning a process of engaging the Board and stakeholders through interviews, online surveys, and focus groups.


Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) is interested in your input as we seek to hire a new superintendent. Beginning on Monday, January 9, 2023, a survey will be available to gather perceptions of the school district and the importance of various characteristics found in effective superintendents. An invitation to participate in the survey will be sent via email and be made available on the CCPS website on January 9.


Various community meetings will be scheduled during the month of January for stakeholders to have the opportunity to be part of the search process and provide valuable feedback. These meetings will be offered both in-person and virtually. The schedule will be made available at a later date.

We look forward to and encourage community involvement in the engagement phase of the search process. It is our intent to keep the process transparent through updates on the dedicated Superintendent Search page on the district website found at For questions regarding the superintendent search process, please email
