Dear Windsor Families and Community,
On Tuesday, September 22, I was appointed as the next superintendent for the Madison Public Schools. Most likely my last day in Windsor will be in early December. I was unable to share this information earlier as I could not tender a resignation to the Board of Education until yesterday.
It was not an easy decision for me to apply for a position outside of Windsor. As many of you know, Windsor has been my professional home for 11 years, and for the last 7 of those years, I have served you as superintendent of schools. Over the summer, my family moved to a location farther away from Windsor. This was an unexpected, but necessary, move.
I feel we’ve accomplished much in my time in Windsor and I’m excited to know Windsor is poised to move another step forward. Our growth beyond the state average in assessments and positive trend in enrollment should continue. The board of education will immediately begin working on identifying the next superintendent for Windsor Public Schools. Our board has a great vision and knows what our district needs to advance our schools forward. I will work closely with them, the district administrators and the next leader in Windsor to ensure a seamless transition for our school district.
Finally, I would like to thank you, Windsor’s families and community members, for your immense support over my years here in Windsor. I feel I am leaving the district in a better position than when I was first appointed to lead the schools and I wish the students and families all the best and much continued success.
