Quaboag School Committee Agenda Lists Former Worcester Superintendent Maureen Binienda as Interim Head

 by Patrick SargentAugust 12, 2022

WORCESTER - Former Worcester Public Schools superintendent Maureen Binienda could be the interim superintendent for Quaboag Regional School District for the upcoming school year, according to next week’s Quaboag school committee agenda.

The Quaboag school committee will meet Aug. 15 and the agenda lists Binienda as interim superintendent under Superintendent's Report. Earlier this week, the school committee budget subcommittee discussed the interim superintendent salary in executive session.

At the Aug. 15 Quaboag school committee meeting, members will meet in executive session to discuss the interim superintendent's contract. It's unclear if the school committee will be taking a vote to name Binienda as the new interim superintendent at that meeting.

A representative for Quaboag Regional wouldn’t comment on the hiring. The school district's website states the district is seeking a new superintendent. Attempts to reach Binienda weren't immediately returned.

Former Quaboag superintendent Brett Kustigian is now the head of Leicester Public Schools. He started his new role in Leicester on July 1 after 13 years in Quaboag.

The Worcester school committee appointed Binienda superintendent in 2016 and she served two three-year contracts until the school committee declined to renew her contract for a third time in 2021.

Binienda’s contract expired on June 30.

Earlier this summer, in an interview with ThisWeekinWorcester.com, Binienda said she is considering a run for public office in Worcester’s 2023 municipal election.

Dr. Rachel H. Monárrez took over as Worcester superintendent on July 1. Monárrez, previously the deputy superintendent of the San Bernardino School District in California, was chosen after a nationwide search by the Worcester school committee.

The Quaboag Regional school committee will meet Monday at 6:30 PM.
