WHATELY, MA — School Union 38 is set to start the 2016-2017 school year Wednesday with a few notable changes, including a new superintendent .
Lynn M. Carey was appointed to the position in March by the Union 38 and Frontier Regional School Committees.
“I have enjoyed spending time this summer familiarizing myself with the district, driving through each of the four towns that make up our community and learning about Frontier and Union 38,” Carey said in an email. “Our K-2 teachers will be using a new comprehensive system for teaching literacy skills that will strengthen consistency in reading instruction.”
Other appointments in the school district include a new principal at Conway Grammar School, Kristen Gordon, and a new assistant principal at Deerfield Elementary School, Tina Gemme.
