LACONIA – After a brief non-public session, the School Board last night announced that Dr. Philip McCormack will be the interim superintendent of Laconia Schools beginning on June 26.
McCormack will work up to 29 1/2 hours per week and will be paid $80 per hour- the standard rate for interim superintendents in New Hampshire.
McCormack retired as superintendent of the Inter-Lakes School District in 2012, and before coming to Inter-Lakes worked for 11 years as the superintendent of the Keene School District. He was called from retirement by the N.H. School Boards Association to take over for the late Marie Ross in the Newfound Regional School District after she became ill in October of 2012 and died later early the next year.
Currently, McCormack is an adjunct professor at Plymouth State University working with graduate students in education administration. A Holderness resident, he is also a member of the Pemi-Baker Regional School District School Board.
McCormack replaces Superintendent Terri Forsten who will be the new superintendent in the Concord School District.
