One thought

  1. I believe the contract between the Town and the new Superintendent should be for one year at a time. There is a lot to be said about merit based employment. There are many qualified educators with a business mind. Let us hope and pray that the School Committee recognizes the need for a business minded acedemic scholar. Let the Superintendent be one who can develop an education model that is practical and effective to develop,equip, and mold the children of this community toward excellence and prepare them to contribute to society. GO WILDCATS!
