A message from Heather Richards, Director of Human Resources

Assistant Superintendent Search Committee Update

The Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough is in the process of searching for the next Assistant Superintendent of Schools. Since July 1, 2019, Mrs. Rhoda Webb has served as the District’s Interim Assistant Superintendent. Beginning July 1, 2020, Mrs. Webb intends to return to the position of Director of English Language Education. The Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough is fortunate to have such a dedicated, committed, caring, and talented employee as Mrs. Webb and I’m excited to have the opportunity to continue to have her serve as a key leader in our District moving forward.

The Assistant Superintendent Search Committee received over fifty applications. After reviewing the applications, the Search Committee selected thirteen candidates to interview, which are taking place virtually over the next several days.
