Final First Impressions

Tomorrow we meet the fifth of the five finalists to become the new Melrose Public Schools Superintendent.  The past three weeks have been a whirlwind affair with candidates spending a twelve-hour day touring around town, meeting with stakeholders, and then facing a public interview process.   In case you were interested in learning more (or missed a particular finalist) Melrose’s online newspaper, The Patch, has been live blogging and archiving the transcripts from each candidate’s parent session and school committee interview.

I hope you will join into this pivotal time in Melrose education.  The school committee has a dedicated email address to collect feedback, thoughts, and take-aways from the entire community –  But hurry, they meet this Thursday night, 3/29 to have a final discussion and select a candidate to become the next Superintendent of Schools.
