NORWALK, Conn. – Next week’s Norwalk Board of Education is expecting to unveil its next superintendent to the public next Tuesday.
The board is expected to vote to approve the contract of Manuel Rivera at Tuesday’s meeting. BOE Chairman Mike Lyons said Friday Rivera is planning to be there. He initially said he would move the meeting the City Hall Community Room to accommodate a larger crowd but then recanted and decided to keep it in City Hall Room A300 because it’s summer and larger crowds are harder to come by.
Rivera was selected to be the new superintendent after a nationwide search assisted by the search firm PROACT. Former Superintendent Susan Marks resigned last July and interim Superintendent Tony Daddona stepped in.
Rivera lives in New London.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. next Tuesday, July 9, in the room A300.
