The BFT would like to extend a welcome to Dr. Ellen W. Solek, who will become superintendent effective July 1, 2012. Dr. Phil Streifer will leave May 1, and Dr. Susan Moreau will serve as acting superintendent during the interim.
Dr. Solek is currently the superintendent of the East Haddam Public Schools, where she has served for five years, and is a former middle school principal and music teacher.
We look forward to establishing a positive and collaborative working relationship with Dr. Solek in the coming months as we confront the many challenges ahead for our district.
