When Superintendent Jonathan Landman left Hopkinton Public Schools at the end of June the school committee decided to hire interim Superintendent Steven Hiersche for the current school year. Now they are looking to find a long-term replacement.
According to a release from Director of Human Resources Kim Pulnik, the School Committee has decided to continue working with New England School Development Council (NESDEC).
"In October, NESDEC will conduct a community forum in the evening; facilitate a forum with the administrative team; gather staff and community feedback through an electronic survey; conduct a forum with the School Committee; and interview key district staff and community leaders via telephone," the release said.
According to the timeline given in the release, an 11-member Superintendent Search Committee will be formed this month. The committee will be made up of district administrators, parents, teachers and elected officials.
Screening of candidates will begin on or about Nov. 19 with the goal of hiring a superintendent to begin on July 1 of next year.
