School committee reviews Mavragis' first year
The school committee provided a one-year evaluation of Concord and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District Superintendent Ed Mavragis for his first year on the job. Calling the school district a high-expectation, demanding community, Concord member Nick Michaels read the review and said the regional school committee approved of the superintendent's outreach efforts to diverse community groups. The RSC was also appreciative of Mavragis' help in winning voter approval for the Concord schools' multi-million dollar renovation and building project.
The RSC noted Mavragis' obvious pride in students and faculty. Michaels highlighted some of the superintendent's work this year in dealing with sensitive issues around student suspensions, and his vocal opposition to state education officials over MCAS issues, such as the length of the testing period and the graduation requirement.
The school committee asked Mavragis to continue to work on articulating an educational vision for the school district and to enhance internal communications with faculty and staff.
