Bourne Superintendent Search Committee Swearing In

Bourne Town Clerk Barry Johnson, at right, swears in the members of the School Superintendent Search Screening Committee Tuesday night in the professional library at Bourne High School.

The Bourne School Committee anticipates having a new superintendent in place by the end of the year.

The window for applications for the position closed last Tuesday, November 5, and the board is starting the final steps toward making a decision. This week, a screening committee was appointed to review the applications and narrow down the pool of candidates to four.

The screening committee was sworn on Tuesday, November 12.

The committee comprises school board members, town officials, parents from each school level, parents of children who need special services, teachers, and administration.

The review process is strictly confidential and the process of narrowing down the candidates will not be public.

At the school board meeting on November 6, committee chairman Christopher Hyldburg said that he hopes that part of the process will be complete by December 10 or the week before. At that point, the four finalists will be announced.

The interviews of the finalists will be done publicly.

“With any luck, a decision will be made by the end of December,” Mr. Hyldburg said.

Former superintendent Steven M. Lamarche left the district for a superintendency in the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District so that he could be closer to his sister. The district hired Perry Davis as the interim superintendent in July.
