On Friday Greenwich Schools released a statement to Greenwich Schools families:
At the Board of Education meeting last night I shared the following update on the Superintendent Search:
The Superintendent Search Committee has launched both an interim and permanent Superintendent search. We are fielding some strong candidates, and will have a Superintendent, whether interim or permanent, in place by the beginning of the school year.
We have appreciated all the input we have received from the community thus far, and have updated our leadership profile from the past superintendent search. We are pursuing another strong leader who can communicate with multiple town Boards and constituents.
Dr. Gildea moved us further along our strategic plan, and we will find the next Superintendent to continue to do that in partnership with our Board.
The Greenwich schools are excellent. Our high school, according to U.S. News and World Report, ranks in the top 2% in the country, and top ten in CT. We have celebrated many successes in academic, athletic and art competitions at the state, national and international levels this year alone.
We thank our school administrators and teachers who make Greenwich proud every day in serving our students, as well as our families and the broader Greenwich community for their support.
