Natick Public Schools Supt. Dr. Anna Nolin is a finalist for the job of superintendent for the Newton Public School district.
Nolin has been with Natick Public Schools for some 20 years, including the past 4 as superintendent. She earlier served as principal of Wilson Middle School in Natick, and before that, as a teacher in Framingham. Last year, Nolin was named president of the New England Association of School Superintendents‘ board.
Her competition for the Newton job consists of New Bedford Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Anderson and Acton-Boxborough Regional School District Superintendent Peter Light, according to the Newton Superintendent Search Committee.
Post updated 2/13/22: Peter Light withdrew his name from consideration after this post was published.
The Newton district serves nearly 12,000 students across 15 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 2 high schools and 2 alternative high school programs, and an integrated preschool program.
If Nolin is hard to find in Natick on Feb. 15, that’s because she’s slated to visit Newton for in-person tours, staff meet-and-greets, and an online community forum. The Newton School Committee that night will conduct public, in-person interviews.
Dr. Kathleen Smith, former Brockton Public Schools superintendent, has been serving as Newton’s interim superintendent. She succeeded David Fleishman, who left last year to lead the Jewish Vocational Service in Boston.
Newton seeks to have a new superintendent in place by mid-year.
