WESTBOROUGH – The search to replace Amber Bock as superintendent of Westborough Public Schools is well under way.

During the School Committee meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 17, Vice Chair Kristen Vincent announced that the search committee had received 34 applications for the position. A search committee is currently going through the applications to determine who will be interviewed on Jan. 30 and 31.

After that, the School Committee will plan a “finalists day” on Tuesday, Feb. 6, which will include a chance for the public to ask questions of the finalists and provide feedback to the committee.

On Wednesday, Feb. 7, the School Committee will interview the finalists, followed by a meeting to determine the new superintendent. If needed, the committee could continue its determination on Monday, Feb. 12.

Vincent said a choice could be made by February school break.

In early December, Bock announced she was leaving after 10 years leading Westborough Public Schools. She has accepted a job at a private school on the North Shore.
