The Malden School Committee has begun it’s search for the next Superintendent of the Malden Public Schools. At their public meeting on November 23, the committee enlisted the Collins Center for Public Management of UMASS Boston to facilitate the search process, and Mayor Gary Christenson in his capacity as Chair of the Malden School Committee appointed two School Committee members, Jennifer Spadafora and Adam Weldai to co-chair the Superintendent Screening Committee. In an effort to make the committee more transparent and reflective of the wider Malden population, three parent representatives were chosen by lottery, as well as one teacher representative and one paraprofessional representative. Co-Chairs Spadafora and Weldai are pleased to share the additional 15 members of the committee with the community (listed alphabetically). We are appreciative that they have offered to volunteer their time to serve our community, and are pleased to be serving with a panel more inclusive and aligned with the diversity and range of stakeholders in the Malden Public Schools than in the past.
The City of Malden has posted and is in the process of hiring their Coordinator of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and upon completion that individual will also be participating in the initial screening and interviews for the Superintendent of Schools position.
