The School Committee is in the process of fulfilling its most important responsibility - hiring the superintendent of schools. With the rapid growth of our school system and the ongoing commitment from our community, 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.
The School Committee has selected the executive search firm Atlantic Research Partners to support a national search for Brookline’s next superintendent. Recruitment of candidates is now underway with the goal of hiring a new superintendent who will start prior to the 2016-2017 school year.
Process and Timeline
Working with Atlantic Research Partners, the School Committee has developed a comprehensive search and selection process that includes: gathering community input from a wide variety of stakeholders to inform candidate selection, developing a leadership profile, recruiting and screening candidates, holding two rounds of interviews, finalist site visits, and selection. The process began in early December 2015 and will conclude in April 2016
The School Committee invites and welcomes community involvement and engagement during the superintendent search process and is offering a number of ways for school and community stakeholders to provide input, including: community forums; an online survey; focus groups with partner organizations of the public schools, and more. Community Forums and Focus Groups begin the week of December 14th and continue during the week of January 4th.
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.
