Superintendent Search Update from the School Committee

On behalf of the Belmont School Committee, I write to you with updates about the search for the next Superintendent of the Belmont Public Schools.

The Belmont School Committee put out a request for quotes for a collaborative executive search firm to work with the School Committee and the community in recruiting a new Superintendent of Schools to be selected by the end of March, 2023. The Bryan Group was selected by the School Committee (https://tbgleaders.com).

The posting for the next superintendent has been posted. You can visit the posting with information about how to apply here: Belmont Superintendent Job Posting and view the advertising brochure with information about the timeline here: Belmont Superintendent Search Brochure

The School Committee appointed 23 individuals to the Superintendent Screening Committee (SSC), representing as many stakeholder groups as possible. The reason for appointing these members, as opposed to seeking volunteers, was to get the process started as soon as possible since the timeline for the search is short.

● Ade Baptista - Parent
● Amy Checkoway - School Committee
● Thomas Estrada-Donahue - Student, BHS

Superintendent Screening Committee (SSC) Meeting

The first meeting of the SSC is Monday, January 23rd, 5:30-8:30 PM. All meetings of the SSC will be posted ahead of time. You can view the first meeting agenda and Zoom link here: Meeting Agenda - 2023-01-23 Superintendent Screening Committee Meeting

An important part of the process is to solicit community input about the attributes, experiences, and desired goals for a new superintendent. This will be of valuable assistance to the School Committee and the SSC as they interview the candidates. There will be a number of opportunities for members of the Belmont school community and community at large to participate in this process including focus groups, a community-wide survey,and vetting groups hosted by members of the SSC.
