  • Superintendent Search: Focus Group Registration

    The Amesbury School Committee Superintendent Search Subcommittee invites APS parents, guardians, and community members at large to participate in a series of focus groups as part of the search process for a new school superintendent. Focus groups are currently scheduled for the following days/times:

    • 1/25 at 9am (parent/guardian)
    • 1/28 at 6pm (parent/guardian)
    • 2/2 at 7pm (parent/guardian)
    • 2/4 at 7pm (community-wide)

    If you are interested in participating in a focus group please follow the link below to fill out a brief registration form. These focus groups will be conducted virtually and only those who have pre-registered will be sent a link to participate.


    For those unable to attend a focus group there will be a community-wide survey published to allow those interested to share their thoughts on the needs of the district, as well as the qualities and attributes they desire of a superintendent. This survey will be shared on the school Facebook page and website, as well as communicated by various other means.

    A survey is also available for those who cannot attend a focus group or want to share their preference in another way.
    That survey can be accessed here: (Survey is open until February 8th)

    For questions or help registering for a focus group please call Daniel Grayton at 978-388-0507.
