Dear Brooklyn School Community,
On behalf of the Brooklyn Board of Education, I would like to announce to you the appointment of Patricia L. Buell as Brooklyn’s new Superintendent of Schools starting July 1, 2017.
Mrs. Buell brings a wealth of experience to the Brooklyn Public Schools. She has most recently been the Director of Educational Services with the Hebron Public Schools overseeing curriculum, technology, and special education. Prior to that, she was with the Vernon Public Schools as the Director of Human Resources, the Director of Pupil Personnel, and an elementary school principal. Patti has also held positions as an administrator with both the Norwich and Bolton Public Schools, as a grade 5 teacher and as a special educator.
As you know, the hiring of a superintendent is the most important responsibility of a Board of Education. The Brooklyn Board of Education has taken this responsibility very seriously. The Board welcomed and is very grateful for the input provided by our community in the search process. The candidate profile developed through that process guided the Board’s work throughout the search process and ultimately led to an outstanding candidate who is a great match for Brooklyn.
Mrs. Buell will visit the district on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, the day after her appointment. The Board asks that you welcome her into our school family.
Aimee Genna, Chair
Brooklyn Board of Education
