Marlborough – When a school superintendent leaves his or her position, the district must often go through a lengthy and often costly process, qualifying and then interviewing candidates as well as hiring an interim superintendent.
With the announcement that Richard Langlois is leaving the Marlborough district to take a position in Windham, N.H., the city’s school department finds itself seeking a new leader once again.
Langlois has only served as Marlborough’s superintendent since January 2013, after former superintendent Dr. Anthony Pope resigned in June 2012 after a tumultuous months-long battle with the Marlborough school community.
Prior to Pope, former Marlborough High School principal Mary Carlson served as superintendent for two and a half years. Carlson took over for Barbara McGann, who herself resigned after less than two years.
