The principal of Paul Laurence Dunbar School will lead the city’s school system while the Board of Education looks for a permanent replacement for former Superintendent Michael Testani.
In a special meeting Monday night, the school board voted 6-3 to name Alyshia Perrin, a longtime teacher and administrator, as the district’s interim superintendent for the next year.
Perrin’s appointment marks the end of Testani’s three-year tenure as schools chief. Testani has accepted the position of superintendent for neighboring Fairfield Public Schools and is scheduled to start Tuesday.
Perrin, who joined the district two decades ago, will lead the school system as the board embarks on what is expected to be a monthslong search for a permanent full-time superintendent.
