Search for Milford’s Next Assistant Superintendent is On

Milford's next Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Kevin McIntyre, hopes to have his replacement hired by the end of February, he announced during a January 21 School Committee Meeting.

Along with a search committee, McIntyre will be looking to hire a new Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment; a position he will be vacating when he takes over for the current Superintendent, Dr. Robert Tremblay, in July.

McIntyre outlined his plan for the School Committee during the meeting, informing them that after applications are narrowed-down, semi-finalists will be interviewed the week of February 22. The search committee will then conduct site visits to the applicant's home school districts, and a decision is scheduled to be made the week of February 29. According to McIntyre, the search committee will be made up of the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendents, Special Education Director ELL Director, and a building Principal.

When reviewing the hiring plan, several School Committee members questioned if hiring an Assistant Superintendent to focus on curriculum was the right hire.

"When this position was created, it was created to fill a need based on the recommendation of Dr. Tremblay," said Member Scott Harrison. "I would want to know what you thought the needs for the district are," he said to McIntyre. "Do we need someone to focus on curriculum or just an 'Assistant Superintendent of Schools'," he said.

Member Patrick Holland also cautioned McIntyre to be thoughtful about what he is looking for in a candidate. "When we created this positon, we had a need we had to address with curriculum," he said. "I don't want you to feel hemmed in by a job description...if you feel that you need someone who is complimentary to your skill set you should tell the Committee."

Other members were in favor of looking for an Assistant who would continue to focus on curriculum in the district, however. "Curriculum is such a moving and changing target," said Member Jen Parson. "We don't want to lose that momentum."

McIntyre said that while he does not plan to step completely away from working on curriculum, he does see a definite need to bring in someone to "maintain and move forward" the work that is going on in the district.

"I see a real need for someone to be dedicated to that role of curriculum...to be engaged in state testing, curriculum mapping, assessment grids, and working with the curriculum team on a regular basis," he said.

The Committee gave McIntyre another task while conducting the search process – find someone who could replace him in the future.

"I would challenge you as we challenged Bob [Tremblay] when searching for an Assistant Superintendent - to hire someone who could replace you," said Holland. "Because I think that having an Assistant Superintendent that is ready to go, has served us well so far."

McIntyre also announced that he will be holding several forums over the next few months to introduce himself to parents and teachers as the incoming Superintendent of the Milford Public Schools. Parents and community members are invited to attend. Future dates are as follows: Stacy Middle School – February 23 at 6 p.m.; Memorial Elementary School – March 1 at 6 p.m.; Brookside Elementary School – March 15 at 7 p.m.; and Shining Star Pre-School – March 16 at 7 p.m.
