On May 31, 2017, I notified the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education that Senior Associate Commissioner Russell Johnston would serve as interim receiver for the Southbridge Public Schools, as receiver Jessica Huizenga was on a leave of absence. Dr. Huizenga's resignation as receiver was announced on July 20, 2017. Dr. Johnston has been working with staff from the Southbridge Public Schools and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to carry out the district turnaround plan. Under his leadership, the team is preparing for a strong start to the 2017-2018 school year. At the Board's special meeting on August 15, Dr. Johnston will provide an update on the work in Southbridge.
