Superintendent search process under fire

July 25, 2011

WOONSOCKET — After complaining publicly and threatening to file an open meetings complaint, School Committeewoman Vimala Phongsavanh says she was finally furnished with the names of the members of the committee in charge of searching for a new superintendent yesterday.
But Phongsavanh remained highly critical of the process, saying it has been unnecessarily opaque and closed off to input from communities of interest outside the school department.
“It's been a shady process,” asserted Phongsavanh, the newest member of the School Committee. “I don't understand why they've been so secretive.”
