NORWICH – With words of regret, the Norwich City School District’s Board of Education accepted the resignation of long-time administrator Margaret Boice, effective March 7.
Boice, a Norwich native who has served as the district’s deputy superintendent for the last 15 years, confirmed she will be leaving the district. She has accepted a position as the assistant superintendent of business services for the Ithaca City School District.
“I am reticent to leave here, but excited about the challenges at Ithaca,” said Boice, who added that she will miss the people she has worked with at Norwich over the years.
According to the district’s website, Ithaca City Schools serves approximately 5,500 students within a 155-square mile area. It operates a total of 12 schools, including eight elementary, two middle and one high school as well as a 6-12 alternative school. The district’s budget for the 2009-10 academic year is over $98.5 million.
