JCBE will seek input from multiple district stakeholders, including parents, students, teachers, principals, and other district administrators and employees, as well as community organizations and groups over the next two months. This input will be provided through surveys, community meetings, focus groups, social media and the district's website.

JCBE said the application review process will take place through December and January and that finalists for the superintendent position will be interviewed in February with the goal of the selected candidate beginning work by April.
