During the Newtown Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, the search firm collecting information on qualities for a new Superintendent made a presentation with their findings.
Members of the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education were on hand to talk about the 20 focus group meetings and the hundreds of responses to an online survey. Dr John Reed took the role of interim Superintendent in May when Dr Janet Robinson announced she was going to take the same post in Stratford.
Reed says about two dozen applications have been received. He told the Board the interview process should move quickly so Newtown won't have to compete with other districts next year when they start looking to fill vacancies.
