Dear Woodbridge School District Community:
It was a true honor to be appointed this past Wednesday evening the next Superintendent of the Woodbridge School District. As a twenty-five-year Connecticut educator, I know Beecher Road School’s premier reputation for excellence, including a recognition that each and every child has special gifts and talents to be nurtured.
This afternoon, I had the privilege of touring Beecher with Board Chair Piascyk and Principal Sherman. As unusual as the circumstances of this school year are, an electric energy of strong teaching and learning still permeated every classroom. Our students are in very, very good hands, and their happiness was palpable!
My first and foremost goal as your Superintendent is to lead us in continuing to build upon Beecher’s strong foundation as a community of students, parents, teachers, administrative and support staff, and Board and Town leaders who put children first. My commitment to you is to listen to each of your voices, to celebrate our successes, and to lead us working together for each and every child of the Woodbridge School District.
Following the Thanksgiving holiday, I will communicate with you a schedule of virtual meetings for the purpose of introducing myself further and hearing from staff and parents about BRS. In the meantime, I would be happy to receive any questions, comments, or concerns at my WPS e-mail address: jbudd@woodbridgeps.
Without exception, every moment of my afternoon at Beecher Road School today confirmed how lucky we all are to be part of this community. I look forward to many continued conversations with you as the wonderful journey of Woodbridge School District continues.
Jonathan S. Budd, Ph.D.
