Superintendent Search Update
 - Distributed Oct. 27, 2023

Dear Natick Public Schools Community,

The School Committee, along with our consultants at NESDEC, would like to update you on the process of the search for our new permanent superintendent. Please take the time to read about the latest developments in this process below:

  • The School Committee approved (and NESDEC began dissemination of) the invitation letter for candidates to submit their applications by December 7, 2023. This deadline puts us on a timeline to select our superintendent by the end of January/early February.

  • We are now working on a process to gather information from various community stakeholders in order to develop a candidate profile that will guide the selection of the superintendent. We will collect feedback through a community-wide survey (coming soon) and a series of focus groups. At its October 2nd meeting, the School Committee voted to conduct the following set of focus groups in the coming weeks:

    • Building administrators and Central Office staff

    • Students

    • Teachers/School staff (two focus groups)

    • Parents/Caregivers: (two focus groups—one in person in the morning, one virtual in the evening)

    • Community members

    • Town leaders (both professionals and volunteers)

Parents/Caregivers - Nov. 9 at the Community-Senior Center, 9 a.m.
Community - Nov. 9 at the Town Hall School Committee room, 5:30 p.m.
Parents/Caregivers - Nov. 13 on Zoom ONLY, 7 p.m.

(More information —including a virtual meeting link—will be announced soon.)

  • The School Committee voted on which members of its Committee will serve on the Screening Committee. Matt Brand (Chair of the Screening Committee) and Catherine Brunell were elected. The members of the screening committee will also include Central Office staff person, a principal, three members of the Education Association of Natick, a student, three parents, the town administrator, and a community member-at-large.

  • The School Committee will be reaching out to stakeholder groups to identify who may be interested in serving on the Screening Committee.

As always, if you have any questions or comments about the process, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].
