NORWICH - DCMO BOCES staff gathered last week to welcome Perry T. Dewey, III as their new District Superintendent. Linda Zaczek, Board of Education President, introduced Mr. Dewey by saying, “I am delighted to introduce our new leader. His strategic planning skills and his deep passion for improving opportunities for our students will be our asset.” The search process took seven months and involved multiple recruitment and interview teams. “I would like to thank all the community leaders and volunteers who joined our team in this process,” said Zaczek.
Perry Dewey welcomed his new team with a warm remark, “I would like to take time to get to know each of you and learn about what you do for our organization. My working experience with other BOCES organizations tells me that the work you do, in every department and at our schools, has a large impact on our student’s opportunities.” Dewey commented on his commitment to connect school to community and to mind communications as the best vehicle to achieve understanding and collaboration.
