The School Committee is targeting Jan. 31 as the date it will meet to vote on whether to hire as the next superintendent one of three finalists: Interim Hopkinton Superintendent Steven Hiersche; Cathy MacLeod, assistant superintendent in Easton; or Wellesley High School principal Andrew Keough. The committee publicly questioned each candidate earlier this month and held sessions where the public could also interview each finalist.
