2020-2021 Superintendent Search

  • Search Process Overview

    The School Committee is in the process of fulfilling its most important responsibility - hiring the superintendent of schools. It is essential to find a new superintendent who can help us build for the future while continuing our long-standing success. The School Committee is determined to name an accomplished and capable individual who will lead the people and programs that provide the energized teaching, engaged learning, and innovative practices for which Brookline is known.
    Stay Informed
    The School Committee and the Public Schools will be communicating openly and regularly with parents and families, community members, and school staff about the progress in identifying a new superintendent. In addition to this page, we will communicate using links and updates on the homepage of the district website at www.brookline.k12.ma.us, via email, through our Twitter feed, on Facebook, through press releases, and with articles in the Brookline Tab.
