The envelope, please ...
Two local school administrators were named as top picks to take over as Franklin High School principal and lead the school through a major period of change.
Medfield High School Principal Andrew Keough and John G. Smith, Principal of the Nashoba Regional High School in Bolton, are the two contenders, Superintendent Wayne Ogden said.
Each will spend a day this week with groups of parents, teachers and students before they're interviewed by Ogden.
Ogden said he plans to sit in on the student groups' meetings with the candidates and plans to gather data from as many of the 100 high school faculty members as possible before making his decision, which could come as early as Jan. 19.
Ogden said he will choose the candidate with the best combination of experience and ability to take the school through what the district hopes will be a major renovation of the high school building.
