At its virtual meeting on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, the Westfield Board of Education will vote on a successor to Dr. Margaret Dolan, who is retiring on July 1, 2021 after 14 years as superintendent of Westfield Public Schools. The virtual meeting begins at 7 p.m.
The Board was notified this morning, May 4, that the Interim Executive Union County Superintendent of Schools has approved the candidate’s contract, a required part of the hiring process.
The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) – the district’s consultant appointed to conduct the national search – sought community and staff input early in the process through online surveys and a virtual community input session. Board members reviewed the applications of 33 candidates (28 of them from New Jersey), then held a series of virtual private meetings to interview the top contenders.
Information related to the search, including the job posting with required qualifications and expertise, is available on the Superintendent Search page on the Board tab of the district website.
