Also, while we are still hearing conflicting reports on what the Friday afternoon wrapup and vote will entail, at last night's School Committee meeting, Dr Argenziano outlined his hopes that the committee will indeed select a single candidate at Friday's meeting, which will be at 4pm in the high school library. This is "imperative" he says, due to specific compeition for two of the candidates with another district.
Argenziano also addressed another concern heard in the community and by some on the committee, that the candidates in general do not rise to the experience and education level that they had hoped for. This, he stated, is due to the budget available for this position.
"You know, everybody wants an experienced Superintendent with 30 years, but we have a budget, and we have to live within our budget, so that somewhat dictates how we proceed"BevCam's video of last night's committee meeting where this was discussed is available to view here. Scroll down, and its the top link in the list of videos. The particular exchange about the Superintendent Search begins at 31:50 in the video. Argenziano also goes into further detail on the process and budget considerations at the beginning of the first candidate interview below.
