Marlborough Taps Saugus School Chief as Next Superintendent

Richard Langlois was one of three finalists for the position.

The Marlborough School Committee has announced it has chosen current Saugus Superintendent Richard Langlois as the city's next superintendent.

According to a press release from the district, Langlois was one of three final candidates for the position. More than 40 candidates were screened and five candidates were initially interviewed.

Langlois was born and raised in Haverhill. He holds an administrative certificate from Cambridge College and started as teacher and coach in Timberlane Regional High School in New Hampshire.

He is in his fifth year as Saugus' superintendent. 

The following is an excerpt from the press release, available on the school district's website:

Citing Langlois’s proven administrative and instructional leadership track record in Massachusetts, the School Committee named him to the position following a three-hour meeting during which the strengths of the three final candidates were discussed in depth.

“We believe that Mr. Langlois is the right person at the right time for the job,” said Mayor Arthur Vigeant.

Langlois’s naming to the Marlborough superintendency will become official once his contract negotiations with the School Committee are finalized. His official start date is yet to be determined.

Langlois’s selection is the result of a nationwide three-month candidate recruitment and interview process conducted by consultant John Connolly of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates search firm.


Former Westborough superintendent Steven Dlott has been serving as interim superintendent since the summer.

And Mr. Langlois leaves no controversy behind in Saugus? Perhaps Marlborough should consider a one year contract? He felt no professional or ethical commitment to honor his new contract in Saugus!
