From the Superintendent
July 2, 2013
These are my first days as your Interim Superintendent of Schools. I appreciate all the help Susan Viccaro and the staff provided during my transition days in June. I learned a great deal during my visits to the schools, meetings with various people, and abundance of reading materials provided to me. It is already obvious this District has a dedicated staff, strong programs, and great students. I look forward to working with all of you over the next six months.
We all appreciate the leadership Susan has provided over the last nine years as Superintendent and her leadership before that for 20 years in this District. Her “fingerprints” are obvious on so many strong educational programs that benefit students. She’s clearly a dedicated individual. We all wish her well as she begins her new responsibilities as Superintendent of Schools in Newburyport, MA.
My background includes 40 years in Newington as a middle school teacher, assistant principal, high school principal for ten years, Central Office assistant superintendent and superintendent of schools for sixteen years. I have also worked as an interim superintendent in Windsor and Bethany. I enjoy the work of the superintendency and look forward to assisting Region 13 until a new superintendent is appointed this fall.
Although this will be a busy summer, the summer months do provide time for relaxing and the opportunity to do many of the things we have “postponed” during the school year. It is my hope all find time to enjoy this beautiful weather and change of pace. It is important to find time to relax.
I am very pleased to be part of your staff in Region 13. I will be in the office most of the summer so do stop in or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to say “hello”, or call to schedule a time to meet with me if you have any particular questions. I will do my best to find the answers.
Dr. Ernest L. Perlini
