Lee’s schools superintendent Eberwein quits as of December

LEE — The town’s school district will soon
be looking for a new superintendent.

Lee Public Schools Superintendent Jake
Eberwein announced that he would be resigning– effective the first week of
December– to the school committee meeting held on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Serving as superintendent for the district
in a part-time role since November 2017, Eberwein will officially step down in
90 days.

At Tuesday’s school committee meeting,
Chairwoman Andrea Wadsworth thanked Eberwein for his service to local
education.

“It is hard for our district because you
have made such great impact,” Wadsworth
said. “We also know you have a bigger impact to make county-wide.”

While working three days a week in a
superintendent role, Eberwein says he spends the other two days out of the week
working on independent projects revolving around education.

Speaking after the meeting, Eberwein
reflected on his time in Lee.

“This district has a really strong sense of identity and culture,” he told the Record. “I’ve been a part of several school districts and it’s very unique here. It’s a community that really cares about its members, very specifically its kids, and they really care about education.”
