Superintendent Search Committee Members Named [UPDATE]

The hunt for New Canaan's next Superintendent of Schools is underway with the an April, 2012 target for naming Abbey's successor.

UPDATE, Nov. 14

The name of BOE member Mary Freiberg was inadvertently omitted from the Press Release issued by the BOE.

ORIGINAL STORY

The Board of Education released the following announcement today:

"Nick Williams, outgoing Chairman of the Board of Education, is pleased to announce the appointment of the committee that will advise the Board in its search for the next superintendent of the New Canaan Public Schools. Mr. Williams notes that this is a blue ribbon panel, composed of representatives of all the key constituencies in New Canaan, knowledgeable about education and committed to the continuous enhancement of our public schools.  In making this announcement, Mr. Williams wishes to thank in advance each member’s willingness to be tireless in seeking an outstanding new superintendent.

 

Now that the committee is formed, the next major task for the Board is to engage a search firm to assist in the process. This phase is already underway. The Board will be meeting with three or four of the search consultants who expressed a strong interest and submitted a proposal. Once a search firm is chosen, a process and a timeline will be developed with the likely appointment of a new superintendent in early April of 2012. This is largely a confidential process, but as it moves forward there will be opportunities for community input and the committee spokesperson will keep the school community informed appropriately.
