Superintendent Search

Dr. Galo has announced her retirement. Dr. Galo will fulfill her contract through the 2018-2019 school year. A new Superintendent will be hired for the 2019-2020 school year.

The School Committee will conduct a full, open search for a new superintendent. The search process will begin in Spring 2018 with the selection of a personnel search firm to assist in the process. Additional actions will include:

  • The School Committee establishing a screening committee with representatives from the staff and community
  • Focus groups and interviews from all stakeholders – parents, students, staff, town government and committees, Hingham residents – to help define the candidate profile Hingham is seeking
  • Launch advertisements for the Superintendent position in September 2018
  • Private screening and interviewing of candidates by the Screening Committee
  • Public interviews of finalists in December 2018 by the School Committee
  • Identification of a new Superintendent in January 2019
