WESTHAMPTON — Michael Sullivan has accepted the position of interim superintendent for the Hampshire Regional School District, and will have his first day of work on Monday.

“I’m excited to get started,” said Sullivan.

Sullivan, who retired this year as the superintendent for the Gill-Montague Regional School District, will be paid $500 a day to a budgeted maximum of $80,000 total. The position includes no vacation days, sick days or health insurance and is set to run until the end of the school year.

The Hampshire Regional School District serves the communities of Westhampton, Williamsburg, Southampton, Goshen and Chesterfield, with Worthington sending its middle school and high school students to the district as well.

The district chose to bring in an interim superintendent after former superintendent Aaron Osborne announced his resignation in August. His last day on the job was Aug. 28.

Westhampton School Committee Chairwoman Brigid O’Riordan said Sullivan accepted the contract that was initially presented to him and that it was finalized on Thursday.

Sullivan said he has no formal plans for his first week, but he expects that he’ll be meeting with principals and central office administrators first, followed by parents and teachers. He also said that he’ll be attending school committee meetings in the coming week.
