New superintendent search process

November 9, 2012  

Letter today from the School Committee -

Town of Medfield, Massachusetts 02052
November 9,2012
Dear Parents,

As you may know, at Monday’s School Committee meeting, Bob Maguire announced his intention to retire as Medfield’s Superintendent of Schools at the conclusion of this school year. Suffice it to say, there is no single individual who is more responsible for developing the Medfield school system into one of the highest performing districts in the state than Bob. His contributions on behalf of Medfield’s school
children will be sorely missed.

In our role as School Committee, it is our responsibility to hire the next Superintendent of Schools. It is our intention to do so in an open and transparent manner seeking the input of all the constituencies involved with the schools – parents, staff, community members, and students. Typical of Bob’s concern for Medfield, he has timed his announcement to provide us with the best opportunity to attract the strongest field of candidates as possible. It is our intention to hire the very best of that field.

While the details of the search process have not been finalized, we have decided to utilize a professional search firm and will commence interviews of several firms at upcoming School Committee meetings on
November 19, December 3′d and possibly December 17th.   The  interviews will be held in the TV Production classroom at the high school where the school committee meets starting at 7:30 pm. Our
goal is to complete the search firm interviews and retain a firm by December 31,2012.

We will endeavor to keep you informed of critical dates in the search process as they develop. In the meantime, we would welcome any thoughts you have about either the process or the qualities you’d
like to see in our next Superintendent. Please feel free to e-mail the committee at schoolcommittee@medfield.mec.edu. Thank you.

Debra M. Noschese – Chairperson
Tim Bonfatti – Vice Chairperson
Christopher Morrison – Recording Secretary
Maryanne Sullivan – Financial Secretary
Eileen DeSisto – Member

PLEASE.... Take the so called superintendent that we have here in Michigan.. In my opinion... She has ruined everything that Utica Community Schools stands for. I have not heard one person say anything good about her. She did manage to outsource our custodians... which was ONE BIG MISTAKE. We now have dirtier rooms and cleaning people we do not trust. Keep up the good work UCS superintendent. You are by far the worst thing that has happened to our once successful district. You are WAY OVERPAID. You shoul hang yor head in shame. Did you take a pay cut.... NOPE.
