More responsibility for Les

Posted by Ralph Ranalli April 9, 2007 09:57 AM


After 17 years as second-in-command, Westborough Assistant Superintendent Les Olsen will be given the chance at a top job as he takes over the Stoneham schools come July 1.

Westborough Superintendent Anne Towle said she will use Olsen's departure as an opportunity to convert his old position from assistant superintendent to director of administration and finance.

The new director will have 28 responsibilities including payroll and contract negotiation. The district began advertising the position this week with a salary range of $90,000 to $110,000.

Olson was hired by Westborough in 1990 as a business manager and became the assistant superintendent four years later. The Newton resident had previously worked for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges as an associate director of evaluation.
