Ten parents, educators, and other community leaders have been nominated to serve on a panel charged with finding a new superintendent for the Boston Public Schools. The School Committee will vote on the panel’s membership at its meeting next Wednesday.
The Mayor’s Office released the list Thursday after School Committee chairman Michael Loconto shared the information with Mayor Martin J. Walsh. The goal is for the panel to recommend finalists to the committee in early winter. The prevailing candidate will replace Tommy Chang, who resigned in June after he and Walsh decided to part ways.
“The role of Superintendent of the Boston Public Schools is one of the most important in our city, and I am pleased that School Committee is moving forward,” Walsh said in a statement.
