Hello GPS Community,

The last day of school has arrived for our students. After a very difficult year of remote learning and a return to in-person learning with restrictions that have placed hardships on everyone, we want to congratulate all our students and families for accomplishing a great deal under trying circumstances. I particularly want to thank our administrators, educators, and all staff for the incredible work they’ve done while working our way through the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the summer approaches, it comes with optimism and hope for a brighter future. The administration of the Greenfield Public Schools will be preparing for the 2021-2022 school year, starting next week. There is much to do to meet the challenges that lie ahead. During the summer months, I will update you on our progress.

The School Committee received the names of the finalists for the permanent position of Superintendent of Schools. They are Bernard Audette, Jennifer Culkeen, Christine Debarge, Thaddeus King, and Carole Learned-Miller. A brief summary of their biographies was sent to our GPS Community on Thursday, June 17th. We have also posted their resumes for anyone interested in reading them on the Superintendent Search web page.

Each of the candidates will be visiting our district for a day on July 6, 7, 8, 12, and 13 to meet with administrators, educators, staff members, parents, and community leaders. Be on the lookout for a survey next week to register your interest in meeting with the candidates. At the conclusion of each day’s visit, each candidate will be interviewed by the School Committee in a public session. The School Committee will deliberate at their July 14th meeting and vote on their choice to take on the leadership of the district.

Wishing you all a happy and safe summer!


Dr. Judith Houle, Interim Superintendent of Schools
