Manchester’s assistant superintendent to leave
Assistant Superintendent Michael Tursi, who oversees curriculum and instruction in the district, announced in an email Friday that he will leave the Manchester district by July 1 to become a superintendent elsewhere.
Tursi’s departure comes as Superintendent Thomas Brennan prepares to leave at the end of June.
The first search yielded three finalists for the post, but after interviews the board decided to begin the search again. The second search has the goal of selecting Brennan’s successor by June 8.
“I would find it very, very difficult for a new person not familiar with Manchester and our district to be able to come in and take over and do what they have to do with the number two man gone and being new to the district,” Gelinas said. “With our assistant superintendent leaving, it places us in a position where we have to ask ourselves quite a few more questions about what direction we have to take.”
The first search is believed to have included at least one school district employee.
Burkush is in charge of student services in the district.
Some committee members preferred to let a new superintendent make a decision on assistants. But the existing agreements provided that contracts were automatically renewed if no new contract was offered by Jan. 1 and the board did not send the three notices that they were not renewed.
