Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston School Committee announced the upcoming dates for public hearings to engage the community in the search for a Boston Public Schools (BPS) superintendent
Boston School Committee Chair Michael O'Neill said the Search Committee will finalize the Superintendent's job description and begin the process of attracting highly qualified candidates.
"We will rely on community input to find the right person to lead our district," said Search Committee Co-Chair, Hardin Coleman. "The next superintendent must be someone who can work collaboratively with our parents, teachers, and students, as well as the greater nonprofit and business community, to give all of our children the opportunity to succeed."
All hearings will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The hearing dates and locations include:
- March 11 at WGBH in Brighton
- March 19 at Harbor Middle School in Dorchester
- March 20 at Orchard Gardens K-8 School in Roxbury
- March 25 at the Dever-McCormack K-8 School in Dorchester
- March 27 at East Boston High School in East Boston
- March 31 at Washington Irving Middle School in Roslindale
The Superintendent Search Committee will be discussing the search firm at a public meeting on March 10, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Boston Public Schools central office (26 Court Street), in the Edward Winter Chamber. The Search Committee will then recommend a search firm to the Boston School Committee at their March 12 meeting. Three final candidates for School Superintendent will be presented to the School Committee in June.
