The Cumberland and North Yarmouth school district is forming a search committee for the next principal of Greely High School.

The School Board of Maine School Administrative District 51 expects the committee will begin its work in mid-January and finish by April. The committee will gather input from stakeholders, review the job description, supervise the advertising and other efforts to identify candidates, review and interview candidates and make a recommendation to the superintendent.

The committee will likely comprise a Cumberland community member, a North Yarmouth community member, a Greely faculty member, a representative of the district’s administration, one or two school board members, a Greely junior and a Greely senior.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Jan 7. Candidates should apply to Board Chairman Jim Bailinson by submitting a statement of no more than 250 words describing the reasons they want to serve and what they would bring to the search process. Applications can be sent to Susan Conley in the superintendent’s office in person, or by e-mail to [email protected]
