Durham and Middlefield may know as early as this week who the new Region 13 school superintendent will be.
The Region 13 Board of Education is expected to meet at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the library at Coginchaug High School, for a special meeting surrounding the appointment of a new school chief.
The board will go into executive session for a "discussion of superintendent's contract" followed by an "appointment of RSD13 superintendent," according to the agenda sent to Patch from the school district.
This news follows a Middletown Press story last week in which the Region 13 Board Chairwoman Kerri Flanagan said a new superintendent could be appointed by the middle of the month. The board sought public input in the process, putting out a survey in which residents and school employees could voice what they wanted in an ideal candidate.
