Superintendent Doyle was finalist for new position

Carlisle School Superintendent Marie Doyle was one of three finalists for Superintendent at the Manchester-Essex Regional School system. However, she removed herself from the running in February.

According to the Manchester-Essex School System's web site (www., Lyle Kirtman of Future Management Systems, who is currently acting also as a consultant to the Carlisle Schools, is handling the search for the Manchester-Essex schools. The Manchester-Essex Regional School District contains four schools: two elementary, one middle and one high school.

Reached later by phone, Doyle explained she realized she was very happy working in Carlisle and did not want to leave. The Carlisle School Committee (CSC) voted in December to renew her contract for three years, and is currently in contract negotiations with Doyle. According to CSC member Christy Barbee, Doyle is earning roughly $125,000, and while the new contract will be somewht higher, it will not be at the level of Manchester-Essex, which was offering a package of roughly $180,000 in compensation.
