"Michelle is going to be a fantastic addition to our district,” said Superintendent of Schools Mr. Christopher Clancy. “Throughout the interview process, her knowledge, vision and experiences at the district level helped us to see that she is the right person to help guide our instructional and technology programs and move our district forward. I am thrilled that she will be joining us as our new assistant superintendent."
“In the coming weeks, I will be diligently preparing for my transition and familiarizing myself with the district's goals, priorities and initiatives,” said Mrs. Gabree-Huba. “I am committed to listening, learning and collaborating with all stakeholders to build upon the district's successes and to identify new opportunities for growth and improvement.”
