New Fairfield School Superintendent Alicia Roy will not seek a contract extension when her current term ends next year, according to Hearst Connecticut Media. A performance review was set for today.
Roy has been superintendent since 2010, but has been criticized in the last couple of years by some board members, teachers and parents for a lack of communication. The union representing New Fairfield teachers cast a vote last year, with 70 percent of members taking part, expressing no confidence in Roy.
The published report included comments from Board Vice Chairwoman Amy Tozzo, saying the sudden announcement is another example of them receiving “pertinent information” from the public instead of from Roy.
