Seattle City Councilmember Burgess’ statement in response to Interim Superintendent Enfield’s announcement
SEATTLE – Councilmember Tim Burgess, Chair of the Council’s Public Safety and Education Committee, released the following statement in response to the announcement by Interim Superintendant Susan Enfield that she would not seek the permanent position of superintendent:
“I was very disappointed to learn of Susan’s decision. She has provided focused, effective and very purposeful leadership at a challenging transition time for Seattle Public Schools. She helped turn the ship, if you will, in the right direction to create fundamental change on behalf of our schoolchildren. Now, we face the uncertainty of a superintendent search and more turnover in the leadership of the District. This is a sad day for our public schools.”
