NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk plans to have a new superintendent picked out by mid-May, Norwalk Board of Education Chairman Mike Lyons said in an email.

The email, sent at 1 a.m. Wednesday, followed a marathon board meeting, much of it carried out in secret. The new superintendent profile details were hashed out in an executive session lasting more than two hours, but details about the results were few.

While board member Sue Haynie said in an email the new profile is “substantially the same” as the profile developed by the superintendent search committee, even though there were “additions and corrections” made, board member Steven Colarossi said in his early morning email that there had been “big changes to (the) profile.”

The details of the original profile were not available, either.

The board agreed on a salary range of $230,000 to $250,000, they said, and on an advertising plan. Both said the recruitment process will end April 25.

Lyons said the votes had been unanimous. He said members “estimated selection of a superintendent by mid-to-late May.”

The chairman said there had been another milestone in the executive session: All nine board members signed the recently written Civility Code.
