Unanimous, School Board Selects Aresta Johnson As Education Leader

It’s been years in the making to name a school leader without “acting” or “interim” as part of a title, but Monday night the Board of Education did something it has rarely done on big issues, unanimously approving Aresta Johnson as superintendent of schools.

Since the summer of 2011 when a majority of school board members threw in the towel and sought a state takeover of schools that was overturned by the Connecticut Supreme Court, the district has been hard-pressed to settle on a long-term leader.

From Linda Conner Lambeck, CT Post:

A board that four months ago was so dysfunctional it wasn’t holding meetings, voted unanimously Monday to name Aresta Johnson its next permanent superintendent.

“We as a board are united behind you,” Board Chairman Joe Larcheveque pledged after the 9-0 vote. “After a prolonged period of interims it is a good feeling to finally get through the process.”

The vote generated cheers from the audience.
