Superintendent Search to begin on January 2, 2020

Dear Hatfield School Community,

As some of you have heard, after 33 years of working in education and 10 years as the Superintendent of Schools in Hatfield, I will be retiring effective the end of June.  On January 2, 2020, the School Committee will begin the search for a new superintendent.  An 11 member search committee made up of stakeholders will be used to screen candidates and identify finalists. The School Committee is expected to make a final selection by May 1, 2020.  The new superintendent will be scheduled to begin work on July 1, 2020. During this time, I will be working with both the School Committee and school staff, as well as, the new superintendent to provide a smooth transition.  A community forum will be held early next year for the public to be briefed on the process and to ask questions.
