A message from the Cohasset School Committee:
In early April, Superintendent Cataldo announced her retirement effective June 30, 2016. The Cohasset School Committee is pleased to announce that Louise Demas has agreed to act as Interim Superintendent, for up to twelve months, beginning July 1, 2016.
Louise has worked in the district since 2009, first as the Supervisor 6-12 for English, Social Studies, and Foreign Language, and currently in the role of Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment; she is also a licensed Massachusetts School Superintendent. Louise is currently spearheading a number of critical district initiatives, including the Digital Learning Committee and the Osgood Principal Search.
At our April 27th School Committee meeting, we acknowledged that the search for a new superintendent could take the better part of the ’16-’17 school year, and would likely involve third-party consultants and participation from community stakeholders. As a first step, the School Committee will meet with the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC) to discuss best practices in filling this important leadership position.
In the coming months the Committee will update the community and offer various opportunities to participate in the search process. We look forward to your participation in this very important task of identifying the next leader of our school district.
Welcome to the Cohasset Public Schools
Welcome to our district website. I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to serve the Cohasset Public School District as Interim Superintendent. Cohasset is a strong academic district with a collaborative partnership with school personnel, families, and the community. Together, a culture of learning and instructional excellence prevails. Highly-qualified teachers, dedicated to their students' learning, implement instrutional strategies to meet the needs of all learners. The district and community partnership in the implementation of a digitally-rich learning environment as well as programs to assure the social and emotional well being of all students results in a learning community where all children come eager to learn and achieve academically.
The district's attention to safety and global awareness enhances the culture where our students are well prepared to meet the challenges of a 21st century environment. We are proud of our students and the citizenship and scholarship with which they prepare themselves for the challenges of a future that is rapidly changing and is increasingly challenging their knowledge and talents.
I considered Cohasset to be among the best public school districts and welcome you to explore the exciting information on our various web pages.
