A few days after being chosen, the candidate for superintendent of schools in Easthampton backed out. After the most recent applicant withdrew her offer, Easthampton had to start looking for a new superintendent.
Current school superintendent Allison LeClair claims as much. Dr. Erica Faginski-Stark was the second candidate offered the position by the School Committee after contract discussions with the first applicant broke down on Monday.
Dr. Vito Perrone, the temporary superintendent in West Springfield, was the initial candidate offered the position in March. Still, he was soon removed from consideration after he referred to the committee chair and executive assistant as “ladies” in a negotiation email.
Look the tweet by Western Mass News embedded below:
Vito Perrone had been the school committee’s initial pick for superintendent until it was discovered that he had referred to two committee members as “ladies” in an email. Faginski-Stark may have withdrawn her offer for unknown reasons.

Some say the second candidate for school superintendent decided she didn’t want the job. The committee agreed to end talks with Perrone on Monday night and extend an offer to Faginski-Stark; she has since declined the position.
Though many have tried to contact Faginski-Stark, she is currently unavailable until April 24 through email.
