HYANNIS – The three finalists for Barnstable Public Schools Superintendent made their last pitch to the Barnstable School Committee last night.

They were interviewed at Barnstable Intermediate School for over three hours in front of an audience.

The committee will meet today at 5 p.m. at Barnstable Intermediate School where they’re expected to appoint a new Superintendent.

Wilmington Assistant Superintendent Kathleen Burnham was interviewed first, followed by Holliston Assistant Superintendent Sara Ahern and Fall River Superintendent Meg Mayo-Brown.

All three will be touring schools in Barnstable today before the committee’s decision.

Mayo-Brown said she brings a lot of experience to the position.

“It’s not a philosophy of the district or the superintendent who says what to do, no, you forget out this work together and you do it collaboratively,” said Mayo-Brown.

There were 19 completed applications received by the search committee and eight candidates were interviewed before it was narrowed down to the final three.

Mayo-Brown said she is honored to be considered for the position.

“By all accounts, there are fantastic things happening in Barnstable and I’d really like to be a part of that,” said Mayo-Brown.

Former Barnstable Superintendent Mary Czajkowski left the post after four years in July, taking the Superintendent position in Lexington.

School Attorney William Butler has been serving as the interim superintendent this year.

The salary for the position has been advertised between $175,000 to $200,000.
