The Dudley-Charlton Regional School Committee is inviting individuals interested in serving on the Search Committee to apply. Officials say they are seeking to have representation from stakeholders who are passionate about education and the future of the regional school district.
All in the community interested in the future of our district are invited to take a survey posted on the district website to inform the School Committee as they make this important decision. Upcoming focus groups will also be held in the community to inform this decision.
The responsibility of the search committee is to review all applications received for the position, select the first round candidates, interview the first round candidates, and recommend finalist candidates to the school committee.
The time commitment for the members of the search committee will include a night meeting for orientation in November; a complete review of applications the week of December 3, a night meeting in December to determine first round candidates and set interview questions; and multiple meetings to interview first round candidates in January.
Applicants should recognize the time commitment and be available to participate for the length of the process. If you are unable to meet the schedule of the search committee, the panel remains interested in your comments; please complete the survey and plan to participate in upcoming focus groups.
Composition of the Search Committee will include two members of the Dudley-Charlton Regional School Committee, two parents, three teachers, as well as a one each from DCTA, Principal, Municipal government, central office, student body and special education.
