Framingham?

When Wayland called with an invitation to apply for their Superintendent's position, Robert Tremblay decided he "wasn't interested" in making a change at the time. However, when the telephone rang, a year later and the town of Framingham extended a similar invitation, it elicited a decidedly different response from Milford's current Superintendent of Schools.

Tremblay, this time, decided to explore the opportunity and after weathering several rounds of screening by Framingham's 15-member search committee, finds himself among the three finalists for the position. "There were 32 applicants (screened) for the position," Tremblay explained. The Screening Committee, which included school staff, parents and community leaders, reviewed each applicant during a process that took place throughout the month of December into early January and narrowed the field of candidates down to nine semi-finalists.

In turn, the semi-finalists were further reviewed and three finalists for the position were named. In addition to Tremblay, the Screening Committee also selected Dr. Stacy Scott, Superintendent of the Dracut school district and Dr. William Hart, Assistant Superintendent for the Pentucket Regional school district.

Tremblay traveled to Framingham on February 1 for a "day-long" 14-hour final interview process, which involved meeting with school officials and visiting the district's schools during the day, before concluding with a school committee interview that evening.

One candidate had already spent a day in the district, while the third candidate was scheduled for a final interview on February 2. According to Tremblay, the Framingham district hopes to appoint their new Superintendent by February 13.

Although Trembly, who has served as Milford's Superintendent of Schools for the past five years, has one year remaining on his current contract with the Milford school district, he explained that "there's a provision in my contract" which allows for an early termination of the agreement, providing he give "60 days notice" to the School Committee.

Prior to his appointment to the Milford Superintendent's position, Tremblay served as both Assistant School Principal and elementary school Principal in the Milford school system. Among his accomplishments as Superintendent, as noted by the search committee, were: the "development and redesigning of ... Observation and Evaluation Instruments;" the initiation of a "tuition-free full-day kindergarten program" and the implementation of a "Family Resource Center". Under his leadership, the Milford district was the recipient of the Massachusetts Association of Gifted Educators Public Service Award. Tremblay also received a nomination for the Paul Keough Award for Outstanding Student of Public Administration.

Tremblay holds a Masters degree in Public Policy from Northeastern University, a Masters of Education degree from Lesley University, a Bachelor's of Music degree from Boston University and is a candidate for the Doctor of Education degree from Northeastern University.

Competing finalist, Dr. Stacy Scott has several degrees from Harvard University and was a practicing Psychologist for nine years, prior to his career in education. He also served as Associate Superintendent for the Montgomery County school district, Maryland.

Dr. William Hart has held the position of Assistant Superintendent for the Pentucket Regional school district since 2007. He holds a Masters degree from Boston University and formerly served as Principal of Leominster High School and Georges Valley High School, in Thomaston Maine.

According to Tremblay, the Framingham position held appeal because "professionally, it's obviously growth to a larger school district" and may represent "the next logical step in my career." He also noted that despite the difference in size, he feels that there are many similarities between the Milford and Framingham school districts.
