Two named finalists for superintendent of Boston Public Schools

By: | June 22, 2022

Two educators with extensive leadership experience in Boston Public Schools have been named finalists in the city’s search for its next superintendent, the Boston School Committee announced Tuesday.

The finalists are Somerville Superintendent Mary Skipper and BPS Regional Superintendent Tommy Welch. Skipper and Welch will each participate in a day-long interview process — Skipper on Thursday and Welch on Friday — that the public can access remotely on Zoom. Each day will end with in-person interviews of the candidate by the School Committee at its Bolling Building headquarters in Roxbury. A full list of events and Zoom links are available on the city’s website.

Two other candidates who were not identified recently withdrew, Mayor Michelle Wu said at a school groundbreaking event on Tuesday.
