Conrad also told the School Committee Tuesday that a 16-member search committee met for the first time Monday and soon will begin reviewing the applicant pool, which closed Friday.
JGMS Principal Kevin Tracey, who began his Bedford career as assistant high school principal in 2006, has been named principal of Reading Memorial High School following this academic year.
There are 47 applicants for the JGMS position. Conrad said the search committee will choose semifinalists for interviews, and then finalists.
“Part of the finalist process will be for them to meet with students, faculty, and parents,” the superintendent said.
