By DENISE DZIUK
Local teachers, administrators, parents and taxpayers will have an opportunity Wednesday and Thursday to voice the characteristics, qualities and qualifications they would like to see in a new superintendent for the New Braunfels Independent School District.
Search consultant Don Kil-
lough, with the Texas Association of School Boards, said sessions will be held throughout the day Wednesday and Thursday with various groups. Killough said the meetings are open to anyone, and members of the public may want to find a group they feel comfortable with.
“What we really want to accomplish is to give everyone who wants to a chance to have input," said Killough. “We don’t

want anyone to feel left out of the process."
The search is to find a replacement for Charles Bradlx*rry, who left the district .Jan. I to la* the superintendent of Keller Independent School District.
Retired superintendent Tom Moseley was hired in December
to serve as interim superintendent until a permanent replacement could la* found.
Killough said there are four basic questions the groups will be asked regarding a suitable replacement. The first asks those present to explain why a superintendent would want to come to New Braunfels.
“That gives us a better feel for the district," Killough said. “That helps because we’re going to he
talking with candidates about the school and the community.”
Next, the group is asked to name some of the problems facing the district and the professional characteristics wanted in a replacement. The last question. which Killough said is just important as the professional traits, is what personal qualities are wanted.
