The community is invited to a public forum tonight to ask questions of the two finalists for the school district’s superintendent position.

The forum begins at 6:30 p.m. at Windham High School with a question and answer session with Winfried Feneberg. He will be followed by Dr. Richard Bergeron at 7:30 p.m.

The candidates were narrowed down from seven candidates invited by for interviews from the Screening Committee in December.

There were three finalists, but one withdrew after being chosen.

Initially 16 candidates applied for the position of being the first superintendent of the new Windham School District, SAU95, which begins July 1.

One member of the 11-member Screening Committee, Ken Eyring, expressed concerns about the process.

“I felt it was very restrictive,” Eyring said. “All notes by committee members were not permitted to be taken home for review. There were prohibitions regarding research of the candidates from outside of the SAU. Also, whatever info that was found, was subsequently prohibited from discussion when we were narrowing down the finalists.”

The Screening Committee could only discuss the candidates based on their resumes, their reference letters from friends, and what we heard in the interviews.

Committee member Donna Bramante InDelicato also said, while the selection process worked, it was restrictive.

“All candidates were asked the same questions,” she said. “So if we had individual concerns, they couldn’t be addressed.”
