Fall River School Committee To Vote On Superintendent Wednesday

The Fall River School Committee has scheduled a meeting for Wednesday night to vote on a new superintendent of schools. The meeting is scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. start.

One of the three finalists for the position is Framingham Superintendent of Schools Stacy L. Scott.

A group from Fall River is in Framingham today, June 21, conducting a site visit on the school district before tomorrow’s vote.

The three finalists for the position were announced on June 13. The other two finalists are former Massachusetts education secretary Matthew Malone and superintendent of schools from New York 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.

It is unknown what the salary is for the Fall River position.
