Marietta is the first settlement in the Northwest Territory, the birthplace of America's stake in the ground that public education for each child is fundamental to the success of our future. Marietta City Schools Board of Education is committed to conducting a thorough and extensive search to find quality candidates to serve our schools and community.

"We are looking for a stellar and dynamic leader to build upon that history and charm of our beautiful community," says Eric Reed, Board of Education President. "One who helps us to develop trust and momentum by championing our vision as a District of Choice and Learners for Life."

To engage community and area stakeholders in the process, OSBA will facilitate staff and community focus groups and host an online survey seeking input on the qualities and skills most needed in Marietta's next superintendent.

Following review of these metrics alongside the applicants obtained by OSBA, the district will host an event open to the public to allow finalists to present and answer questions from the community. 

The board hopes to name Marietta City Schools' next superintendent in July, allowing for a smooth transition into the 2022-23 school year.

"Marietta City Schools would like to thank Mr. Hampton for his 17 years of dedication to our district including his last seven as superintendent," says Reed. "We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Applicant questions may be directed to Teri Morgan, Senior Deputy Director, BMS.
