A search for a new principal is underway right now.  Resumes have been submitted and reviewed by the committee; eight applicants have ben invited to interview with our team.  Interviews will be conducted on May 11th and May 12thwith hopes of announcing up to three finalists on May 13th.  Candidates will hopefully be scheduled to visit Longmeadow Public Schools on May 14th, 18th or 22nd.  Committee members will also visit the candidate’s current place of employment on May 20th, 21st or 22nd.  I will narrow the pool to one finalist by May 27th and complete reference checks and contract negotiations.  If all goes well, I  will make a final announcement to the public by June 5, 2015.  Committee members include:
