It was a whirlwind courtship for the four finalists that the School Committee members identified as Bill Olsen’s potential replacement. All four were escorted around town to meet teachers, students, and administrators. The candidates also met with the committee to answer questions and discuss their operational approach in overseeing a public school system. School Committee members will take a vote on March 18 at 7 p.m. The meeting is virtual.
