Just a note out to the B2 community that there’s an important opportunity (act now…it won’t last long!) to meet the four finalists for the incoming Belmont Schools Superintendent this week and next. According to a notice posted on the Town’s Web page, the four candidates will be available to answer questions in a public forum two days this week and two days next week. The schedule is as follows and all meetings are in the Belmont High School, Library between 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Thursday (tomorrow) Jan. 15th : Candidate Dr. James J. Kelleher
Friday Jan 16th: Candidate Marie H. Doyle
Wednesday, January 21st: Candidate Dr. Richard J. Hoffmann
Thursday January 22nd: Candidate Dr. George Entwistle 3rd
As we’ve written before, these are the final four candidates for the job and one of them will be taking over as Schools Superintendent next year — an incredibly important position in shaping school policy, driving academic achievement, fostering a top rate work environment for our teachers, and ensuring that Belmont’s students receive the best education possible. Criticisms are often made that the School Department is too insular, so here’s an opportunity to show up and put your question to the candidates for Superintendent yourself. I hope to see you there!
