Former Framingham Superintendent Speaks at School Committee Convention

HYANNIS – Framingham Superintendent of Schools Stacy Scott, who is on an extended paid leave from the public school district, was listed as a presenter at the Massachusetts Association of School Committees last week.

Scott was part of a presentation on “Creating a New Path For Assessments” and was listed in the program as “former superintendent” in Framingham. (See program photo below.)

The Framingham School Committee will begin formal plans to hire a new Superintendent of Schools for Framingham this month.

Framingham Public Schools Chief Operating Officer Ed Gotgart was named acting Superintendent just days before the 2016-17 school year began. The School Committee has said he will serve as acting through the end of the school year.

Scott was hired in 2012. His contract expires on June 30, 2017. The School Committee has made no public statement on Scott’s contract since it was announced he was on leave a few days before the school year began in August. The School Committee announce the leave on August 24 in a memo to Framingham Public school employees. Framingham Source was the first media outlet to publish the news to the community.

As Scott is still an employee, the district will not discuss the personnel matter.

In May, Framingham Source exclusively reported that Scott have been superintendent without a valid license for the entire 2015-16 school year.

He was later granted his license from the state that same month. Scott’s contract required him to have a license.

After the license issue, the Framingham Teachers Association took a no confidence vote in Scott.

The School Committee also held closed door meetings to discuss the Superintendent., after the license issue became public.

During the 2015-2016 school year, Scott was a finalist for superintendent in three school district in two states. In each case, the district chose another candidate.

During last week’s Convention, Framingham School Committee member Beverly Hugo was voted President elect of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees.

The Massachusetts Association of School Committee also honored former Framingham and Randolph School Committee member Michael Bower, with a lifetime achievement award.
