LETTER: Wadland’s Experience Needed on Framingham School Committee

FRAMINGHAM – I first got to know Scott Wadland many moons ago when we both attended the PTO President’s meetings. At that time, I was impressed by his thoughtfulness, depth and breadth of knowledge on many issues, and problem-solving approach.

I was not surprised when he later became President of the (then) TownWide PTO and, eventually, a School Committee member in April of 2017.

During his tenure on the School Committee he has continued to be articulate, analytical, and results-oriented.

He has chaired the Policy Subcommittee, been part of contract bargaining teams, and has been deeply involved in the development of the Fuller Middle School project.

Scott has always taken a collaborative approach with his fellow members, with the Superintendent, and with other administrators, focusing on solving problems, achieving goals and benefiting all the students in Framingham. Scott will ask tough questions and stand up and fight for his ideas when necessary as well, and this dynamic is what we all need going forward in our district. 

As the current FHS PTBO president with a daughter at the high school, I have a vested interest in the success and future of the Framingham Public Schools, and I feel Scott Wadland shares these interests and concerns. 

He has two daughters in FPS, has been a vested stakeholder for many years, and has been engaged with his community. He has learned the ropes well and will be ready to go on day one of the new term.

There is much work to be done – complex and important work – and Framingham needs seasoned leaders with a history of caring about Framingham to help get it done.

Scott has given deeply of his personal time and talents to the Framingham Public Schools, and I hope to see him continue to do so.
