Superintendent Search survey

The Galesburg CUSD 205 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 board, staff, and community input in the search process.  The Board requests that all community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB.  The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position.

The link for the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GFXXZNQ

The survey will be closed as of 11:45 p.m. on 11/10/14.

Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.

Safe Driving Commitment can earn money for GHS

   Making the "safe driving commitment" online takes less than a minute and can help Galesburg High School earn money.

    Celebrate My Drive is designed to encourage everyone, especially teenagers, to keep two eyes on the road and two hands on the wheel (2N2).  Celebrate My Drive is a celebration of smart driving decisions and of life.  State Farm is giving high schools a great opportunity to win a grant up to $100,000 by committing 2N2 daily.  To increase our chances of winning, we encourage all students, faculty, family, and friends to commit once a day through October 24, 2014. Go to celebratemydrive.com/commit and fill out your commitment for the day. Commitments can be made once a day by everyone 14 and older.

   Galesburg High School has not been on the leader board yet.  Other schools in our area are currently or have recently been on the leader board including Washington High School, IL and ROWVA High School, IL.
