UPDATE This is one of 11 questions asked in a survey of 40 Westport school administrators completed a month before Schools Superintendent Colleen Palmer announced on March 14 her intention to retire effective Aug. 1. A note accompanying the survey said it expresses “grave misgivings, distrust and deep concern in general about the entire Central Office staff of the BoE and especially” Palmer. Purportedly from the Westport Intermediate Administrators Association, the unsigned note added it is clear from the survey results that Palmer “can no longer be effective in her current role and a replacement needs to be in place as soon as possible.” Asked to comment on the survey. Palmer said: “We are aware of the survey, and our BoE has been working to create productive conversations to listen to and assist in resolving these concerns. We value our administrative team, and we are taking the results of the survey very seriously.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
