Jodi Fortuna

Jodi Fortuna, Ed.D
Superintendent of Schools

This evening (10/25/16) I informed the School Committee that I would not be seeking an extension of my contract beyond June 30, 2017. I have cherished the nine years that I have spent in Hudson, both personally and professionally.

 During the past three years, that I have been superintendent, we have implemented universal, free full day kindergarten while entering a partnership with CHAPS Inc. that allows every family in Hudson an affordable choice for preschool education, added mental health supports for our most struggling students, and finished the first phase of the development of a rigorous curriculum. None of this would have been possible without the support that the Hudson community shows for the education of all students and the strong team of educators that serves this community.

 

I will be with the District until the end of June and look forward to continuing the important work planned for this school year. With the provision of my notice not to seek an extension of my contract so early in the school year, the school committee is well positioned to begin the search for the newest Superintendent of the Hudson Public Schools. This is the opportune time to find the best individual to build on our successes. The School Committee will provide frequent updates about the process for selecting the new superintendent.  The Committee and I will work together to insure a seamless transition so that the forward momentum of the District will continue uninterrupted.

 

Thank-you for your continued support of the Hudson Public Schools.
