Nearly a dozen educator, parent, and civil rights organizations are calling on Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the School Committee to bar Interim Superintendent Laura Perille from applying for her post permanently.

In a statement Wednesday, the groups demanded that Walsh and the School Committee “state clearly and publicly that the interim superintendent will not be considered for permanent appointment.’’
