The Daily Item of Lynn reported last Friday that Pola Andrews has been hired as the Executive Director of Finance and Operations for the Saugus School District. Andrews had been the business manager for the regional school district in Hamilton-Wenham.

Superintendent Michael Harvey told Hamilton-Wenham Patch on Wednesday that he is “not inclined to re-fill the position.”

“Since we already have an Assistant Superintendent for Business and Finance (Peter Gray), I do not see the need for another 'executive-level' position in the business office,” he said.

In June 2011, Andrews had her hours increased from 30 to 40 hours per week and given the title of business manager as part of a restructuring of the central office following .

The Daily Item reported that the Saugus School Committee unanimously voted to hire Andrews last Thursday, after she was recommended for the position by Saugus Schools Superintendent Richard Langlois.

So sorry to hear that Pola will be leaving HWRSD. She did and excellent job sorting out the mess left by the audit company that Marinel and the former school committee had on board for 27 years. And Kudos’ to new Superintendent Michael Harvey for recognizing that we do not need 2 assistant Superintendent AND a business manager. Now Peter Gray can concentrate on the job he was originally hired to do!!
