Mashpee superintendent finalist for off Cape position--again

Ann Bradshaw gives it another go
It's the second time around for Mashpee Super Bradshaw

Mashpee school superintendent Ann Bradshaw is being considered for a superintendency of the Pittsfield School System.

Last April, the Norton school committee voted unanimously to offer her a position, but they were unable to come to agreement on contract specifics.  According to, Bradshaw is also being considered by the Groton-Dunstable Regional School District.

The Pittsfield school committee offered an increase in the salary range from $125,000 to a range of $150,00-$170,000.

Last April we reported that Mashpee School Superintendent Bradshaw was dropped by Norton. Off Cape sources informed us that after multiple negotiation sessions between the Norton School Committee and Ann Bradshaw, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement on contract specifics.

This sounds suspicious because the terms were widely advertised when Norton was seeking a new superintendent, and this could simply be a safe way for Norton to back off hiring a superintendent whose school has suddenly become news, and not the kind one wishes.
