Waltham Public Schools Superintendent Search
The Waltham School Committee invites parents, students, faculty members, and community residents to join in the search for a Superintendent of Schools. With the assistance of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC), a series of community meetings have been scheduled and an online survey has been prepared.
All meetings are voluntary and open to everyone. Participants will be able to offer feedback, recommendations, and ideas to help the School Committee select a new Superintendent.
If you cannot attend the meeting scheduled for your particular group, feel free to attend any of the other scheduled meetings.
In the coming weeks and months, a survey will be available online and
in paper form to offer feedback as well. We are interested in your opinions.
For more information, contact Lisa Whittier, Secretary to the School Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
