Update on Superintendent Search,  May 9,  2017

The Willington Board of Education appreciates the more than 100 staff, parents, students and community members who contributed to the superintendent search process and provided us with their perspectives.  Special thanks go to the Community Search Committee, a knowledgeable and diverse group, and the more than 20 candidates and in particular our finalists for the time and attention devoted to this process. 

The Willington Board recognizes that the selection of the superintendent is one of the single most important decisions it will make over the next few years and therefore, after considerable thought and deliberation, has decided to suspend the superintendent search and revisit it after the first of the year in 2018. Our intention is to utilize the valuable input provided from our many constituents when we revisit the search process. 

The Board has looked ahead at the impact of the yet to be determined State budget on the school district’s budget and programs, is awaiting the results of an ongoing facilities study that may impact capital expenditures and educational programming in Willington, and is cognizant of the fact that several new Board of Education members may be elected to serve the interests of the Willington Public Schools this November. In consideration of these anticipated significant changes this calendar year, the Board has asked our current experienced interim superintendent to lead us through this potentially significant transformation. 

Again the Board extends its thanks to everyone involved and it is committed to keeping you informed regarding the search process which we anticipate will revisited in January of 2018.    


Engage in Excellence
Willington Public Schools, through a partnership with
students, parents, staff and the community,
