AUGUSTA — The Augusta Board of Education is holding two “coffee house” community forums in an effort to hear what members of the community want in their next school superintendent.

Cornelia Brown, superintendent in Augusta for 13 years, has announced she is resigning to take another job, effective Dec. 31.

As part of the process of hiring a new superintendent, Augusta Board of Education members plan to be available at two upcoming public input sessions, both in the food court at Cony High School.

The forums are scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight and Wednesday in the food court at Cony High School.

Susan Campbell, chairwoman of the board of education, said surveys about the issue will also be available at the forums.

“We’re looking for good input on what people are looking for in our next superintendent,” Campbell said. “We want to make sure we have the right person to move our district forward.”
