Hiersche begins as interim superintendent

Steven Hiersche officially began work Wednesday as interim school superintendent in Hopkinton after signing an 11-month contract worth $142,083.00 plus benefits, according to an announcement by Kim Pulnik, the district’s director of human resources. Hiersche, a former superintendent in Framingham, Watertown, and Plymouth, takes over the system after Jonathan Landman resigned in May after one year on the job, citing personal reasons. A schedule is being created for the faculty, staff, and community to meet Hiersche and will be announced in the next few weeks, according to the press release. The School Committee is scheduled to meet twice this month to establish a process for selecting a permanent superintendent to take over after Hiersche’s interim contract expires next July.
