Franklin West Supervisory Union is pleased to announce that Linda Keating has accepted a position as the new Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment at Franklin West Supervisory Union, effective July 2015. She will replace Mary Lynn Riggs who is retiring after 6 years at FWSU.
The decision made by the Franklin West SU Board of Directors follows a lengthy search process which began January 2015. A search committee was formed of superintendent, principal, content-area specialists/teachers, paraprofessional, school board member, and FWSU staff. Following interviews, the committee identified 2 finalists out of a pool of 10 applicants. Linda Keating was presented by Superintendent Kirsch to the FWSU Board and they voted unanimously to offer her a contract.
Linda Keating is currently Elementary Principal at Sheldon Elementary School in Sheldon, VT where she has served for the past 3 years. Prior to that, Linda served as Assistant Principal for Curriculum at BFA S. Albans, and was Executive Director of Curriculum at Chittenden Central Supervisory Union. Ms. Keating received her M.Ed. from the University of Vermont and brings over 35 years of experience in education.
The Board is confident that Linda Keating’s extensive knowledge of curriculum and broad administrator experience make her an excellent fit for this position. We look forward to welcoming her to FWSU in July!
