The All Boards Chair Committee of Region 1 will recommend to the Region 1 Board of Education the hiring of CABE consultant Mary Broderick to assist in the search for a new assistant superintendent. Broderick is familiar to the region, having conducted the search when current Assistant Superintendent Pamela Vogel was hired in 2015. Vogel will become superintendent on July 1, 2017, when Superintendent Patricia Chamberlain retires. The ABC Committee, which represents the chairmen of the region’s seven local school boards, said Broderick will conduct focus groups, place ads and perform background checks as part of the process. There is $9,800 budgeted for the service.
Canaan member Karen Riccardelli wondered about spending money for a search that was done less than two years ago. Region 1 board member Andrea L. Downs said initially she had some of those concerns, but she has changed her mind.
The committee also agreed to have its members and those of the Region 1 board serve as the search committee. Falls Village’s Rachel Gall suggested they seek to find ways to get other people’s viewpoints. Chamberlain suggested they consider a survey to get input from the community.
