School Committee Members Wrapping Up Site Visits
School Committee members are returning to New Bedford after visiting the communities where the candidates for suuperintendent have been working.
Dr. John Fletcher went to Memphis, Tennessee to check on the performance of Dr. Kriner Cash. Cash was superintendent in Memphis for four years before resigning in January.
Dr. Fletcher says his team met with 25 people, including the Mayor. He said those he met with were honest and forthcoming, and most of them were sorry that Cash was no longer the superintendent in Memphis.
Fletcher tells WBSM News, he’s looking for a particular skill in New Bedford’s next school leader…..
The School Committee will meet Monday night at Keith Middle School to select the next superintendent.
