Congratulations to Cindy Marten! This week, the Board of Education officially appointed her to be our next Superintendent as of July 1, following my retirement. The community response to Cindy's appointment has been overwhelmingly positive. She is excited to begin her Superintendency in July. Cindy and I have already met to address a transition plan with the goal of getting her well-oriented to the full range of academic, operational, administrative and leadership matters. We agreed that she will spend the month of March wrapping up her commitments at Central Elementary School and preparing to move to the Central Office on April 1. At the Education Center, Cindy will immerse herself in programs, processes and routines that she will oversee as the next Superintendent. Read more.
