The Amherst, Pelham and Amherst-Pelham Regional Schools are in the process of seeking a permanent Superintendent of Schools to serve our communities. To support this process, the districts have contracted with Ray and Associates, Inc. to conduct the search. A consultant for Ray and Associates, Dr. Michael Rush, met with the School Committee this past Tuesday to recommend a timeline and process for selecting the new Superintendent and the Committee voted to accept the timeline.
Dr. Rush will return to our district on Wednesday, January 25 and Thursday, January 26 in order to conduct focus group sessions. These group sessions will represent a broad range of constituencies within the school district and the larger community and are intended to gather more specific information about the strengths and challenges within our community.
Parents and guardians are invited to meet with Dr. Rush on Wednesday, January 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school library. The meeting with Dr. Rush will last one hour. Please be sure to attend and offer your thoughts about what qualities, skills, and experience the School Committees should consider as they seek a permanent Superintendent of Schools.
