A screening committee evaluating applications for the next superintendent of schools has been given until June 12 to decide whether to make recommendations to the School Committee or halt the search and hire an interim leader.
The 11-member screening committee has been asked to assess 24 applications and to decide whether any of those candidates would be a worthy permanent superintendent or, if not, to hire an interim superintendent and resume the search next year with professional help, officials said.
The School Committee recently voted to extend the screening committee's review period until the next school Committee meeting, said Amy Baker, a member of the school and screening committees. The original deadline was this week.
Superintendent Sheldon Berman will leave the district on July 1 to head the Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky.
