The superintendent of the Burlington school district is no longer interested in the job as superintendent in the Addison Central Supervisory Union.
Jeanne Collins pulled her name from consideration, saying she is committed to the Burlington school district and she believes they are poised to make a significant difference in the efforts around diversity and equity. Collins is contracted with Burlington through the end of the 2013-2014 school year. She removed her name from consideration before any offer was made by Addison Central.
"As a result of deep reflection and with appreciation for the dedication and support of the School Board, administration, faculty and community in Burlington, I am committed to remain in the Burlington School District," Collins said in a statement to WCAX News. "I have a vision that Burlington School District will be
nationally known for providing educational equity, academic excellence, and
education for sustainability. I want BSD to be a beacon of hope to urban
districts across the country. I believe that the Burlington School District
has the will, skill, capacity and knowledge to be a guiding light for failing
urban districts across the country."
The job in Addison Central is to replace Gail Conley. Addison Central includes schools in Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge.
