The School Committee voted 6 to 1 to accept a three year contract with Richard Langlois as the new permanent Superintendent for the school district.
"I look forward to stepping in July 1st," said Langlois who currently works as the Superintendent for the Saugus School District. "I think this is a great partnership and great marriage."
The committeevoted 6 to 1 to approve the $185,000 contract that includes 25 vacation days, 30 sick days and $2,000 for travel expenses. Interim Superintendent Stephen Dlott was signed for $180,000 for the year, although he was to be paid for a shorter term, said Mayor Arthur Vigeant.
School Committee Member Mark Hediger was the sole negative vote, saying that he did not approve of language which shifted the relationship between the superintendent and the committee.
"The trajectory we were on has not been honored by the contract," said Hediger.
Langlois will take over leadership from Interim Superintendent Dlott on July 1st.
