The Shaker Regional School District, serving the towns of Belmont and Canterbury, NH, has begun the process of a search for their new superintendent. Last year, the Shaker Board made the decision to hire an interim superintendent, Michael Tursi, for the 16-17 school year, and then begin a complete search this fall. The selected candidate from this search will begin on July 1, 2017.


As part of the process, the Board has created a search committee made up of representatives from administrators, teachers, parents, support staff, community members, and central office staff in order to make sure all perspectives are taken into account. In addition, there will be four focus groups—one held at each school--open to all Belmont and Canterbury residents, in order gain feedback about what the needs are for Shaker’s permanent superintendent. The dates for these are:


Canterbury Elementary School:  September 15, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.


Belmont Elementary School: September 22, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.


Belmont Middle School: September 13, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.


Belmont High School: September 21, 2016 at 5:15 p.m.



If for any reason you cannot make it to a focus group in person, the Board has also created an online survey where you are encouraged to give your input. You can reach this survey through the following link:


The Shaker Regional School Board is excited about hearing from as many voices as possible, and seeks to find the best fit for this important position for our schools and communities.
