A letter posted on the Northampton Public School website, Associate Superintendent Dr. Lisa Martin noted that the Northampton School Board has accepted the resignation of Dr. Jaime Cole. Cole was picked to replace Eddie Lawrence after he announced his retirement. She has served in that role for three months.
“I want to share the decisions made at today’s Board meeting. This morning the NCPS School Board members accepted Dr. Cole’s resignation, effective immediately. Currently, as Associate Superintendent, my position serves as Acting Superintendent in the absence of the superintendent. At the Board meeting on December 8th, school board members will discuss and take action on the appointment of an Interim Superintendent. I’ll be sure to share more information at that time.
“During this transition, please know that my focus will continue on learning, listening, helping to bridge communication gaps, and building trust. I want to ensure that our efforts remain focused on the needs of our students, teachers, staff members, parents, and communities. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to seeing you in school.” – Associate Superintendent Dr. Lisa Martin
