RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Karen Baldwin, who has been hired to take over the job as superintendent of schools in Ridgefield on July 1, is already making herself familiar with the school system, according to the newstimes.com.
When Baldwin was hired by the Ridgefield school board in November, she planned to finish the school year as superintendent of the Suffield Public Schools, the newstimes.com said.
But in December, Suffield bought out Baldwin's contract, the report said. Since then, Baldwin has been able to meet regularly with current Ridgefield superintendent Deborah Low, who will retire at the end of the school year, the newstimes.com said.
Baldwin and Low say they are working to ensure a smooth transition, the report said.
Baldwin's contract calls for a $225,000 annual salary with a $10,000 per year annuity.
