NORTHFIELD — In their first meeting to discuss replacing Superintendent Ruth Miller, Pioneer Valley Regional School District’s Superintendent Search Committee decided to scope out the possibility of sharing administrators with another school district.

The search committee was formed as a result of Miller’s June announcement that she won’t be looking to negotiate a new contract once her current three-year contract is up. If nothing changes, Miller’s last day as superintendent will be June 30.

The five members of the committee are Patricia Shearer, John Rodgers, Jim Bell, Peggy Kaeppel and William Wahlstrom. With all present but Rodgers, the committee overwhelmingly agreed Thursday that the best path for the district is to try to work out some sort of shared superintendent and central office staff arrangement on an interim basis while considering opportunities for sharing central office staff long term.
