She will alert the North community immediately if she is named as a superintendent. Her term as superintendent would not begin until July 1.

Dear North Community:
As I hope you know, I love Newton North and have been honored to serve as Principal for the last 8 ½ years. Yet, I have reached a point in my career where it makes sense for me to think about leading a district. As a result, I decided to apply to a small number of Superintendent positions this fall, and will be named as one of several finalist in a few districts over the next week.
Given Massachusetts open meeting law, my name will be made public even though the interview process is still in progress. I will inform you immediately if I am going to be named as a Superintendent. In any case, the position would not begin until July 1st.
Please know that my heart is struggling with all of this, even if my head is telling me that this exploration makes sense professionally. Thank you, as always, for your support. I can personally tell you that it means so much.
Best,
Jennifer Price
