Ridgefield schools fill top administrator positions

August 21, 2018

RIDGEFIELD — The Board of Education recently approved new hires to fill two of its vacant top administrator positions.

Chris Creller, the interim chief academic officer from Norwalk, was hired to fill Ridgefield’s assistant superintendent position, which Kim Beck resigned from in May. Creller had worked in Norwalk for nine years as interim principal at Jefferson Science Magnet School and the district’s K-12 mathematics instructional specialist.

The Ridgefield board also approved Elizabeth Hannaway to fill the assistant superintendent of special services position, which oversees special education. Hannaway is the assistant director of special education in Shelton and will replace Kim Hapken, who announced she would retire earlier this summer.

The district is still looking for a permanent superintendent to replace Karen Baldwin, whose resignation became official at the end of June, and a permanent principal at Scotland Elementary School, where the principal resigned amid controversy this summer.
