The board voted 4-1 – with board member Debbie Winskill dissenting – to name Santorno first as superintendent-elect (interim), beginning in January. After serving six months in that position, Santorno would become interim superintendent from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
The plan would include a board evaluation and community forums to collect public feedback in January 2013, after Santorno serves in her new leadership roles for a year.
Then, the board will decide to either extend her contract or conduct a national search.
Sounds sorta familiar.
Also, recall Middle College HS teacher Beth Brunton being nominated for 2011 teacher of the year by the Simon Youth Foundation? Well, she won. This is a great story of a teacher going far above and beyond for her students, helping to create the program there and raising funds for a life coach and substance abuse counselor. Congratulations Ms. Brunton!
