Adams-Cheshire Plans Talks with North Adams on Sharing Superintendent
Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee members were "underwhelmed" by a barely three-page report that outlined some benefits and concerns over sharing a superintendent with North Adams, but it was enough for them to desire talks with their city counterpart.
iBerkshires.com reports after quickly reviewing the District Management Group Shared Superintendent Feasibility Study on Monday, the committee asked to hash out the prospect of a shared administrator further with North Adams.
Putnam last year announced his retirement at the end of this school year, prompting a search committee to be formed.
The committee agreed to also look at the option of sharing a superintendent with another school district and the North Adams School Committee voted in February to fast-track part of a two-year feasibility study to look specifically at how a shared superintendent might work.
Adams-Cheshire is continuing its superintendent search process alongside this study.
