Malden School Committee to Conduct Superintendent Search

Mayor Gary Christenson, on behalf of the Malden School Committee, announced that the Committee recently voted to not renew the contract of Superintendent Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy which ends June 30, 2024.   

Dr. Noriega-Murphy has led the Malden Public Schools since July 1, 2021, which included some challenging times in education especially during COVID-19. Dr. Noriega-Murphy assembled a strong leadership team both within central administration and individually at each school for the return to in-person learning which ensured continuity for the 6,400 students and their families of the Malden Public School system. 

“I am grateful to Dr. Noriega-Murphy for her contributions to education in Malden, and the professional approach she has brought to the role,” said Mayor Christenson. “Running a district this size can best be described as demanding. Dr. Noreiga-Murphy has positioned us for the future with a solid foundation that we can build upon as we collectively work to deliver to Malden families the education they deserve.”  

The School Committee will begin the search process for the next superintendent with the assistance of outside support and will take up the discussion and planning surrounding the search process at the February meeting.
