After 21 years of service, including 11 as the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Alan Addley has informed the board he will be leaving Granby to serve as the Superintendent of Darien Public Schools. His start date in Darien is still being finalized but the transition will most likely occur in July.
We congratulate Dr. Addley on his appointment and thank him for his exceptional leadership and dedicated service to Granby. Under Dr. Addley’s leadership, Granby has been recognized for our high achieving public schools—and these accolades, awards and rankings reflect the commitment of our community to excellence in education. In November 2018, Dr. Addley was named “Superintendent of the Year” for Connecticut and will leave large shoes for his successor to fill.
At the May 1 meeting, the Granby Board of Education appointed itself as the Personnel Search Committee for the new Superintendent of Granby Public Schools. The committee’s work will be guided by a search consultant and will commence its work immediately. The process of selecting a new Superintendent of Schools will include an opportunity for the community to provide input into the professional and personal attributes desired in the new superintendent. The Granby Board of Education will provide the community with regular updates on the search process through the Granby Drummer, board meetings and district website.
