Information on Superintendent Search

March 22, 2011 Update

City of Northampton

On March 14 the Northampton School Committee was presented with the names of two finalists for the position of Superintendent recommended by the Search Screening Committee. On March 21 the School Committee met to discuss the search and plan interviews.

The School Committee was concerned with the small number of finalists, and on advice of Dr. Joseph Wood, the search firm’s consultant, decided to extend the search by re-advertising the position. The New England School Development Council will continue to provide its services until a suitable candidate has been chosen.

Stephanie Pick, Vice-Chair to the School Committee and Search Screening Committee Chair, has been charged with retaining members of the previously appointed Screening Committee, and with replacing its membership with similar representative constituents as necessary.

A new search timeline will be published soon.

For additional information about the position, please contact:
