The Falmouth School Board announced on Friday a candidate for superintendent.

Geoff Bruno, executive director of curriculum, instruction and accountability at the Saugus, Mass., school system, was the only candidate selected by the school board.

Parents and community members can meet Bruno during a planned visit to Falmouth Jan. 29, when he will meet with the public at 4:30 p.m at the Falmouth Elementary School Library.

“Due to a combination of factors, including the high standards set by the school committee, only one individual will be brought before the public at this time,” said Andrew Kinley, Falmouth board chair, in a public message announcing Bruno’s visit.

Outgoing Superintendent Barbara Powers announced her retirement in October. Powers served the district for 16 years, the last five of which in the top post.
