Southington School Supt. Dr. Joseph Erardi is the “candidate of choice” for the superintendent position in Newtown, according to a recent email sent out to school faculty.
“There is not another job in the country that I would be interested in other than in Newtown,” said Dr. Erardi in the e-mail, adding that Newtown officials will conduct a site visit on Friday. “Over time, as a school leader, you realize what you do well. I looked at what I believe were positive professional attributes within my personal skill set and became part of the search process.”
Erardi became superintendent in Southington in 2007, replacing Dr. Harvey Polansky. He previously served as superintendent in Watertown and Bolton.
