The Greenwich Board of Education announced Tuesday the extentsion of Dr. Wiliam McKersie's contract as Superintendent of Schools. The Board voted unanimously to keep McKersie until at least June 30, 2017. 

"In the last two years that I have lived and worked in Greenwich, I have become deeply invested in the schools and in the community. My commitment is to do all I can to have Greenwich known nationally as a school system that accelerates learning for all students, provides robust artistic, musical, athletic and social programming, promotes civic dedication and service, and fosters in all staff and students an unwavering focus on compassion and caring," said McKersie. 

Some of his recent accomplishments include the oversight of the implementation of Common Core Standards in reading/language arts and math, and the administration of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Field Test.

"This will be the first time in 12 years that a superintendent has committed to stay beyond the initial three-year contract. We are gratified that we have this opportunity to stay the course with Dr. McKersie,” said Board of Education Chairman Barbara O'Neill.
