King Philip Regional School District Superintendent

The King Philip Regional High School Principal Interview Committee met last week to narrow the field of seven semifinalists down to four. A total of 48 individuals applied to be the next principal at King Philip High School.

Monday, June 4, each candidate will spend a portion of the day visiting KP. Each visit includes focus groups of teachers and students, a learning walk-through in classrooms at the high school and a second interview with the King Philip administrative team.

The Superintendent of Schools will narrow the pool of four down to two. It is expected that these two candidates will be visited by a small subgroup from the 14-member Interview Committee, which consists of parents from Wrentham, Norfolk, and Plainville, students, teachers, high school administration, school council and school committee representatives.

A "meet the candidate night" for parents is being discussed, but no date for this has been arranged yet.

"We were very pleased with the number of quality applicants.  The final decision will be a difficult one, but an important one for King Philip Regional School District and its students."
