PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The school system's deputy superintendent is one of four finalists for the superintendent's post in Ashfield.

An article by Metro West Daily News says Barbara Malkas made the cut after a "marathon of interviews" with 10 semifinalists culled from 30 applicants.

The school district has been without a superintendent since last fall, when the district's leader abruptly resigned.

The Ashland School Committee will visit the candidates school district's next week and bring in the candidates for interviews the following week with the expectation of having a new superintendent named by April 9. The salary would be between $150,000 and $170,000.

Malkas was promoted to deputy superintendent in 2008 when Howard "Jake" Eberwein III was named superintendent. Malkas had been assistant superintendent for personnel and negotiations for less than a year at the time. Eberwein is stepping down from his post on June 30.
