(Memphis) Parents concerned about who will be heading up the new unified Shelby County School district can have a say in the search for a superintendent.

The school board is holding community input sessions all day to let the public come and meet the group heading up the search and

tell them what characteristics they are looking for in a superintendent.

The Illinois based professional search firm PROACT has been hired to look for prospective candidates.

The group will be in town to talk to parents and others in the community and answer questions about the search.

Each session will last about hour.

If you cannot attend you can fill out survey online by clicking here.

The school board is also sending about 150,000 of the surveys home with students.

The board hopes to make a decision by the end of May or first of June.
