Blackstone-Millville


Regional School District

Press Release: Interviews Announced

February 7, 2018


Dear Members of the Blackstone and Millville Communities:


As you may know, Blackstone-Millville Regional School District School Committee is in the process of conducting a search for its next Superintendent of Schools.  At this time, the School Committee has identified three finalists who will visit the district. They are: Dr. Jason DeFalco, Dr. Richard Drolet, and Mr. Kevin McNamara.


Dr. Jason DeFalco is currently the Deputy Superintendent of Schools for the New Bedford Public School system. Dr. Richard Drolet is currently the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Accountability for the Uxbridge Public School system.  Mr. Kevin McNamara is currently the Principal of Lincoln High School.  Each candidate's resume is available for review on the district website (www.bmrsd.net).


Dr. DeFalco will be visiting on Friday, February 9th.   Dr. Drolet on Monday, February 12th and Mr. McNamara on Tuesday, February 13th. During their visits they will have the opportunity to tour each school, meet with Town Administrators, present to all staff and host an open session for the public in addition to their formal interview with the School Committee.


As a member of our communities, we are hoping you will participate in this interview process.  There are two options for participation. One opportunity for participation is during the open public sessions. The public will be invited each day at 6:30 pm.  Feedback on the candidate will be accepted after this session.

Another way to view each candidate is as an audience member during the formal School Committee interview session. Only School Committee members will question the candidates during this session, but the public is welcome to sit in on that interview and provide feedback to the Committee. The interview will also be recorded and shown on the town television stations after all of the three visits have concluded.

Our hope is that many community members will participate in this process.  It is important to the School Committee that we receive your feedback on these candidates so that we have as much information as possible available to us in making this very important decision for our district. We hope to see you all during these visits and look forward to the process of selecting the next Superintendent of Schools for Blackstone-Millville.


Sincerely,


Members of the Blackstone-Millville Regional School District School Committee
