EHS Principal Search - Feedback Needed

February 3, 2020
The Essex Westford School District is in the process of starting a national search for a new principal at Essex High School and is looking for your help. With Principal Rob Reardon having announced his upcoming retirement, the District will be looking to hire his replacement for a start date of July 1, 2020.


The EWSD is conducting the search with the New England School Development Council and will be setting up focus groups for students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members. The information that is gathered during these focus groups will be used to help screen candidates and develop interview questions.    


Please join us to help identify the qualities, characteristics, skills, and experiences you believe the next EHS principal should possess!


Focus Groups - Tuesday, February 11, 2020 (at Essex High School)

  • Students: 10:50-12:20 p.m. (TBD)
  • Teachers/Staff: 2:45-4 p.m. (EHS cafeteria)
  • Parents/Community: 6-8 p.m. (EHS cafeteria) 


If you can’t make one of the focus group time slots, you can also take this short survey to share your thoughts.


Thank you,


Beth Cobb
EWSD Superintendent
