Grabowski also said he took issue with Langlois hunting for a job while under contract with Saugus. A year ago, Langlois was a finalist for the top job in the Pentucket Regional School District.
“The musical chairs with superintendents is not unusual, but I don’t think it’s fair to the community that loses a superintendent,” Grabowski said.
But Joseph Malone, another Saugus School Committee member, said Langlois did “an outstanding job” there. He credited Langlois with establishing a top-notch leadership team, and saving the district money by returning outsourced special-education services to Saugus.
“I hate to lose Rich Langlois as a superintendent,” Malone said. “I think our loss is Marlborough’s gain.”
