Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members,

You are cordially invited to two upcoming events:

1. Meet the Marblehead High School Principal finalists February 9th 6:30 PM

I am pleased to invite you to meet the two MHS principal finalists on Tuesday February 9th at 6:30 PM and 7:30 PM in the MHS library. The Marblehead High School Principal Search Committee selected the two finalists for the positions after interviews of a strong slate of candidates.

  • At 6:30 PM, the public will have the opportunity to meet Ms. Deborah Holman, currently principal at Brookline High School.
  • At 7:30 PM, at the same location, Mr. Daniel Bauer, currently assistant principal at Beverly High School will be introduced to the group.

Marblehead High School's current principal is leaving at the end of his three-year contract in June, as announced last month. A twenty-four member Search Committee was convened consisting of teachers, parents, central office administrators, and MHS assistant principals. The committee was co-chaired by School Committee member Susie Pratt and the Superintendent. Interviews were conducted February 1st and 2nd. Site visits to the candidates' home districts will also be conducted prior to a final decision.

*Snow date will be Wednesday, February 10, 2016 same times.

Please join the Superintendent of the Marblehead Public Schools and the Central Office Administrative team for the second "Conversation with the Superintendent" Tuesday, February 23rd at 7:00 PM in the Marblehead High School Library.
