Former Greenwich Schools Head Leaves Post in N.Y.

GREENWICH, Conn. – The day former Greenwich School Superintendent Sidney Freund was slated to begin an interim position in Greenburgh, N.Y., the district announced that Freund and the Board of Education mutually agreed to void his contract, according to the Greenburgh Central 7 website .

“This will not affect the education of our children,” said Terry Williams, president of the district’s school board. “The district will be in the capable hands of Dr. Susan Sciascia while we conduct a search for an interim superintendent.”

Freund was appointed to the Greenburgh post in November and was set to begin Jan. 3. Sciascia, assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and personnel, will serve as acting superintendent until an interim candidate is selected.

Freund unexpectedly submitted his resignation in Greenwich on May 17, blaming unrest on the Greenwich Board of Education, and left in August. Roger Lulow, a former Greenwich superintendent, replaced him and will serve as interim school chief until the district finds a permanent replacement. It will be district’s third superintendent search in six years.

Freund was appointed interim superintendent in November so the Greenburgh district could search for a permanent replacement for Ronald Smalls, who retired. Freund's contract was expected to expire June 30. He previously served as interim superintendent in the district from 2007 to 2008 after retiring as superintendent in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.
