Vineyard schools superintendent Dr. Matthew D’Andrea is a finalist for the superintendent’s job in the Wareham public schools.

Mr. D’Andrea is one of two finalists for the job, with a decision expected before April 28, according to an announcement on the Wareham school district website this week.

If he is selected he will begin work July 1, according to a timeline on the site.

Mr. D’Andrea was named superintendent on the Vineyard in 2015 to replace retiring superintendent James Weiss. At the time he was assistant superintendent.

He came to the Vineyard in 2013 and had previously been principal of Old Hammondtown School in Mattapoisett and an assistant principal in Marion.

When he was hired in 2015 he said his areas of focus would include universal preschool and teacher retention.

The other candidate for the Wareham job is assistant superintendent Dr. Andrea Schwamb.

Speaking to the Gazette by phone Tuesday, Mr. D’Andrea, who has two years to run on his contract here, said he was not applying for other jobs.

“I haven’t had an interest in any other job,” he said. But he said the Wareham district holds a special appeal for him and his wife.

“I taught in Wareham for 10 years, and in many ways it’s similar to Martha’s Vineyard,” Mr. D’Andrea said. “It’s got really great families, supportive families, appreciative families [and] a great staff.”

If he is not selected in Wareham, Mr. D’Andrea said he will remain in his current position.
