The highlight for the week at Amity High School was a reception held to welcome the new Region 5 Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Charles “Chip” Dumais.
According to Amity Principal Charles Britton, this past Wednesday afternoon, Dumais met with Amity faculty, staff and administration during an after school reception. He will begin his tenure in Amity next Monday, March 3.
Dumais looks forward to meeting with students and parents soon. As he transitions into the position, interim superintendent, Mike Nast, will be transitioning out.
“Mr. Nast served as the interim superintendent since July, 2013. On behalf of the entire faculty, staff and administration, we extend our appreciation to him for his exemplary leadership,” Britton said. “We wish Mr. Nast all the best of luck in his future endeavors. We know he will continue to work tirelessly as an advocate for public education across Connecticut.”
