The search for a new Adams-Cheshire Regional School District superintendent will kick into high gear next week when a subcommittee begins its review of the 12 applicants for the job.

The Berkshire Eagle   reports search Committee Chairwoman Regina Hill says her panel is individually poring over the candidates' resumes before an initial meeting Monday to further discuss whom to select for the first round of interviews. The subcommittee will eventually pick three finalists for public interviews before the full School Committee.

The candidates are vying to succeed John Vosburgh, who will be leaving at the end of the month. Former Superintendent Al Skrocki has been appointed to serve on an interim basis until a permanent replacement is found.

The goal is to have a new superintendent at the helm by September, according to School Committee Chairman Adam Emerson.
