On behalf of the School Board, I am pleased to report that the search for Mamaroneck’s next superintendent is going well. There was a very good response to our ads and to our consultants’ aggressive recruiting efforts. In total, over fifty potential candidates, representing ten states, applied or were actively recruited by Dr. Bruce Dennis and Ms. Debbie Raizes. This past weekend, the Board interviewed a very strong slate of six candidates and has narrowed its search to three semi-finalists, all sitting superintendents.
We will be forming a small advisory committee to meet with the finalist(s), which will include teacher, administrator, parent and Central office representatives. This advisory committee will assist by providing us with feedback in terms of the candidates’ strengths as well as any questions or concerns they may have.
The search is proceeding according to the timetable that the Board and our consultants initially agreed to in the fall. We will keep you informed as the search progresses.
President, Mamaroneck School Board
