Public forum set to discuss superintendent search
Thomaston — The Regional School Unit 13 Superintendent Search Committee wants to know what the community would like to see in its next leader.
A forum has been set for Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. in the Oceanside High School East auditorium.
The search for a permanent superintendent is under way. Ads have been placed on servingschool.com and Maine School Management Association will be vetting applicants and making recommendations to the district. Interim Superintendent Michael Wilhelm's contract is through the end of May.
"This is an opportunity to look ahead and share ideas," said Thomaston school board member Marla McGeady, who is a member of the search committee. She added, the meeting is not to dwell on what has happened in the past.
Oceanside High School East students also will be providing child care in exchange for community service credits. Pizza will also be available.
Once the board has narrowed the candidate search to those it intends to interview, the board will invite administration, teachers, faculty, staff, parents and other community members to be on the board, McGeady said.
