Members of the Superintendent Search Committee were approved by the School Committee Monday night, in the next step toward filling Dr. Patricia Ansay’s position.
Ansay will be process coordinator. School Committee chairwoman Beth McManus and member Margeret Werner are also selected to be on the committee, along with school administrators Jeanne Sullivan and Raymond Dewar, teachers Kent Taylor and Sara Horton, superintendent administrative assistant Terry Rand, Selectmen Robert Kimball, Town Manager Michael Yunits, citizens-at-large Lindy O’Connell and Kenneth Cabral, student Hannah Lavendier, parents Shawna Powers and Karen Ellston, site council business representative Alicia Fernandes and support staff member Loretta Wilson.
Student council president Sara Pisdadian was concerned about the student representative being a senior, since she would not be around to see the final result.
“We left the process up to Mr. Dewar, and that was the name he submitted,” Ansay said.
Overall, there was a good response of applicants. The best response was from the citizens-at-large category, McManus said.
The first meeting will be Monday, Dec. 12.
