The Billerica Public Schools is currently seeking highly qualified candidates to apply for the position of Director of Special Education, which has become available for the 2018-19 school year. We have begun the processing of assembling a Screening Committee to assist in the search process. The Screening Committee will review applications, interview candidates, and recommend several candidates to the Superintendent as finalists for the position.

The Billerica Public Schools invites four (4) administrators, four (4) teachers / related service providers, one (1) paraprofessional, three (3) parents/guardians, and one (1) community member to serve on the Director of Special Education Screening Committee. People who serve on the Screening Committee should be able to attend several meetings including the candidate interview sessions. The first meeting of the Screening Committee will be held on March 5, 2018, at 3:15 p.m. in the Collins Room, located in the Billerica Town Hall. During this meeting, we will discuss the interview process, begin to review applications and develop potential interview questions. Many tasks must be accomplished during this meeting so members should plan to be available for approximately two hours. A subsequent meeting will be held on March 8 at 3:15 p.m., with screening committee interviews, scheduled the week of March 12 - 16 (Times TBD).

Selecting a new Director of Special Education is an important activity for the entire community, and it requires an extraordinary commitment of time and energy. If you are interested in serving on the Director of Special Education Screening Committee, please forward a letter of interest to Jill Geiser, Assistant Superintendent, at jgeiser@billericak12.com, no later than Friday, February 16, 2018.
