As our search for Spartanburg School District Three's next Superintendent gets underway, we want you to know what's happening as it happens. As of October 10, 2022, the Board has completed its review of the survey results, which gathered information from District stakeholders about what they consider essential in the Board's selection of a new Superintendent. We greatly appreciate the responses we received and would like to provide the community with the anticipated timeline for our search.
