Scott Finalist For Superintendent in Fall River

Framingham Superintendent of Schools Stacy L. Scott is a finalist for superintendent of schools for the Fall River Public School District.

The finalists were  announced tonight at the Fall River School Committee meeting, which began at 6:30. Public interviews with finalists could start as early as Thursday, June 16.

The other finalists are former Massachusetts education secretary Matthew Malone and Charles Grandson.

This will be the third time Scott has been named a finalist for a superintendent position, this 2015-16 school year.

Scott was hired in 2012, and his contract was renewed in 2015.

Last month, Framingham Source exclusively reported that Scott has been working the entire school year with out his license. He was granted a license days after the report was published.

Last fall, Scott was named a finalist for the Cambridge Public School district, but then withdrew his name.

Last month, Scott was named a semifinalist in Louisiana for Superintendent, but last week the public school board voted in a split vote to reject all three finalists, including Scott, and re-advertise the position.

The Framingham School Committee has been holding closed door meetings with Scott and his lawyer, since early May.

Nineteen individuals applied to be Superintendent of Fall River Public Schools, of which 10 were interviewed behind closed doors by the 16-member Fall River Search Committee.

Current Superintendent Meg Mayo-Brown will take over the Barnstable Public Schools on July 1.
