Focus groups are being formed as part of the search for a superintendent of schools by the Region 12 Board of Education.

The groups will be scheduled with school staff, parents, students, elected officials, business and service club leaders, as well as other community members, to provide input in the search process.

Focus groups will begin immediately and continue throughout October. Meeting dates will be posted on the district's website at www.region-12.org.

Those unable to attend a focus group may complete a survey form available at town libraries, senior centers and town halls in Bridgewater, Roxbury and Washington.

Completed forms should be sent to CABE Search Services, Box 290252, Wethersfield, CT 06129 on or before Oct. 30.

CABE Search Services, an educational recruitment firm, was hired to facilitate the search. Superintendent of Schools Bruce Storm will leave the district in June.
