Superintendent search gears up

32 people from six states apply for Beverly post


Briscoe is a century old and in poor shape, but the city is planning to build a new middle school at the site of the Memorial Building on Cabot Street.

Argenziano said Beverly also has a strong teaching staff with a mix of veterans and younger teachers. The district hired 50 new teachers this year, accounting for about 12 percent of its staff. The new teachers are replacing ones who retired or moved. Argenziano said there were no layoffs.

“If you have good facilities and a good infrastructure and no layoffs, it’s good for morale,” he said.

Argenziano said the district has tightened security, with coded keypads now in place at all school buildings.
