Dear Barrington 220 Community:
Since my family and I moved from Ohio to Barrington in 2021, I have had the absolute privilege of becoming a part of this community and serving as the Superintendent of Schools for Barrington 220. You have welcomed me with open arms, which is why this message is difficult to write.
On Monday, January 30, the Board of Education for Upper Arlington Schools in Ohio will consider entering into a contract for me to become the next Superintendent of Schools. This decision is based on what is best for my family, as I will be moving back to Ohio.
Upon approval at Upper Arlington, I will resign my position as Superintendent of Schools of Barrington 220 effective June 30, 2023.
On Tuesday, Jan. 31 the Barrington 220 Board of Education will hold a special meeting in closed session to discuss next steps. I am fully confident in the Board’s commitment to ensure that there is no disruption to the great work happening within our school district. We will communicate more information next week, following the special meeting, about the search for Barrington 220’s next Superintendent of Schools.
Please know that this was a personal family-based decision, and it was a very difficult decision to make. I am truly grateful for all that you have done to welcome my family into this school district and for the community’s support for Barrington 220. We have important work ahead during the second half of the 2022-23 school year. I look forward to continuing to serve as your Superintendent of Schools and will work to ensure an effective transition in district leadership.
