  • The committee will have representatives from the following communities: NPS administration, NPS educators, NPS families, NPS students and general members of the Newton community.
  • The committee is charged with working with the consultant to develop the profile of the new superintendent (through feedback from all stakeholders), vetting candidates, and selecting finalists.
