PLT3 Superintendent Search Survey

The Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico CUSD 3 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent.
The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process. The Board of Education is seeking staff, parents and community member input in the search process.
The Board requests that everyone complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The surveys can be accessed at:
The survey will be open until November 18, 2019 at 11:45 p.m. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position.
Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.
