Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. Section 63 of chapter 71 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1984 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the last paragraph.
SECTION 2. Any superintendent in a union, employed under the provisions of chapter seventy-one of the General Laws, who, upon the effective date of this act, has served continuously in the same union for more than three years and who has been employed at least twice as superintendent in said union, each for a term of three years, shall not be removed except for inefficiency, incapacity, conduct unbecoming a superintendent, insubordination or other good cause, nor without full compliance with the provisions of section forty-two of said chapter seventy-one, relative to teachers and other superintendents, as to notice of intention to dismiss, specification of charges, hearing and substantiation of charges.
Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent a joint school committee from voting to employ a union superintendent who has completed three or more years service to serve at its discretion.
