Forgo a National Search and Appoint Dr. Susan Enfield as Permanent Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools sign now

We, the parents, teachers, staff and friends of the Seattle Public Schools (SPS), petition the Seattle Public Schools Board of Directors to forgo a national search for a Superintendent and to appoint Interim Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield as the Permanent Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools.

We believe that Dr. Enfields performance as the Interim Superintendent demonstrates that she has the characteristics, skills and decision-making capabilities to work through many of the issues facing the district and move us forward.

We also believe that a nation-wide search will cost SPS much more in uncertainty and time than is often understood. Not only will a year be spent conducting a search, but a new candidate will most likely come from outside of our community, and will require at least one to two more years in the role before they can effectively understand the constituents, budget constraints, political realities, and other variables required to make sound longer term district decisions. SPS has already paid that price once in the past 4 years. In this critical period of drastically reduced education budgets when strong leadership and planning is desperately needed, we cannot afford to pay this price again, especially when such an effective candidate is already at the helm.

Please, forgo a national search and appoint Dr. Susan Enfield as the Permanent Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools.
