The purpose of this blog post is to update you on the Killam Elementary School Principal Search. We have had 22 applicants apply for the position, which is a excellent showing for an elementary school administrative position. The candidates who have applied have a wide variety of education and administration backgrounds and experiences. This week, the Killam Elementary School Screening Committee interviewed 9 candidates who have strong backgrounds in administration, teacher leadership and elementary classroom experiences. This part of the process is confidential so that we are able to attract that largest number of qualified candidates possible. Based on the interviews, reference checks, and application review, a small group of finalists will be announced to the Community next week. These finalists will participate in a public process which will include site visits and open microphone sessions with the Killam Community. More details will follow on that process in a future communication.
We would like to thank the members of Killam Screening Committee who are participating in this process. The members are as follows:
- Micheala Saunders, Human Resources Administrator-Facilitator
- Joanne King, Wood End Principal
- Kelley Bostwick, Team Chairperson
- Erline Trites, Paraprofessional
- Amy Hussey, Killam Teacher
- Julia Doherty, Killam Teacher
- Ann Sweeney, Killam Teacher
- Marc Moll, Killam Parent
- Bryn Burkhart, Killam Parent
- Nancy Cresta, Killam Parent
We will update you on the process when more information becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact the Reading Public Schools administration offices at 781-944-5800.
