Parents, community members, students and employees are encouraged to complete an online survey about the search by going to the district’s website at www.enidpublic

The survey takes about five minutes to complete, said Amber Fitzgerald, EPS director of human resources and communications. It includes questions about district services, as well as desired qualities for the next superintendent. It will be open through Monday.

If community members would like to complete a survey, but do not have Internet access, they are asked to contact their neighborhood school.
