NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. – An 11-member committee that includes Northbridge School Committee member Michael LeBrasseur will begin the search for a new assistant superintendent of schools this week.
LeBrasseur was named to represent the School Committee on the search committee at its meeting Tuesday night. Other search committee members include Schools Superintendent Nancy Spitulnik, Middle School Principal Mary Ellen Mega, superintendent consultant Linda Denault, SPED Director Robert Lynch, Technology Director Kadion Phillips, kindergarten through eighth-grade math facilitator Alison Wells, and NES literacy specialist Julie Benoit.
A parent representative and a volunteer from Northbridge Elementary School and Balmer School have yet to be appointed.
The School Committee approved the search process and job description for the assistant superintendent position at the Tuesday meeting. The position will be posted through the School Spring website on Nov. 14.
The search committee will review applications Nov. 28 and 29, candidates will be interviewed Dec. 10 to 15, the successful will be introduced to the School Committee for approval on Jan. 8 and begin on Feb. 4.
If a candidate isn’t found in the first search, the position will be re-advertised on April 8 with the hope that an assistant superintendent will be in place by July 1.
Spitulnik was assistant principal for teaching and learning until the resignation in May of former superintendent Susan Gorky.
At that time, Spitulnik was named interim superintendent. She was appointed superintendent by the School Committee on Oct. 23.
