Volunteers sought for Superintendent Search Screening Committee

The School Committee is looking for members of the community to serve on the Superintendent Search Screening Committee. The Committee’s role will be the preliminary screening of applicants for the position of Superintendent of Schools. Its responsibilities will include reviewing applications, conducting screening interviews and recommending candidates to the School Committee for further consideration. Future Management Systems, the search firm working with the School Committee, will conduct an orientation with the Screening Committee concerning these responsibilities.
In addition to an interest in the Wayland schools, a member of this Screening Committee must commit to:
  • Maintaining confidentiality about the candidates throughout and after the process has been completed; and
  • Making themselves available for a total of 20-30 hours of time from approximately November 2, 2020 and December 7, 2020, including:
  • Up to 10 hours of time to review application materials
  • 15-20 additional hours of meeting time to participate in screening interviews as well as the decision-making process as to which candidates to recommend to the School Committee for further consideration. Screening interviews most likely will take place during the evening hours, and possibly on a weekend, in November/early December.
Current parents will be selected for the Screening Committee by the Townwide PTO and other community members will be selected for the Screening Committee by the School Committee. In selecting members of the Screening Committee, both the Townwide PTO and School Committee will strive to achieve a cross section of the Wayland Public Schools community, with representation from all school levels and constituencies.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Screening Committee is invited to send a completed application to Jeanne Downs, Chair of the School Committee, Wayland Public Schools, Town Building, 41 Cochituate Road, P.O. Box 408, Wayland, MA 01778 by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 16th.
