Superintendent finalists meet the community

The Carlisle School Committee held open meetings and individual interviews for each of the three finalists for Carlisle School Superintendent for during the week of February 9.

The three candidates are: Marie Doyle, Principal of the Bigelow Middle School in Newton, Richard Bergeron, Superintendent/Principal of the Blanchard Memorial School in Boxborough; and Thomas Scott, Super-intendent of the K-8 school in Shirley.

Each candidate spent a day in Carlisle, visiting classrooms and meeting students, teachers and administration staff. A public time for parents and others in the Carlisle community to meet each candidate was held from 4 to 5 p.m. on the day of the visit. A public interview by the Carlisle School Committee followed in the evening.

This week, the search committee visited each finalist in his or her school system.

The School Committee, in collaboration with Future Management Systems of Danvers, began the search process in November. A nine-member search committee studied and discussed the 35 completed applications submitted for this position. Eight individuals were interviewed before the search committee selected the three finalists.

The School Committee anticipated appointing its next superintendent at its meeting last Wednesday, February 25 (after press time). The name of the new superintendent will be posted on the Mosquito's web site within 24 hours of the announcement.
