NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — The head of the Connecticut school district where a gunman killed 20 elementary school students and six faculty members reportedly intends to take another job.
Newtown Schools Superintendent Janet Robinson tells The News-Times of Danbury (http://bit.ly/XX3FKz) on Monday she intends to accept an offer from the Stratford School District to become its new superintendent as of July 1.
Robinson said the Stratford school board is scheduled to meet Wednesday to formally offer her the job, "and I will accept." She was speaking from California, where she's attending a national conference of school administrators.
The News-Times said Robinson has been praised for her leadership after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, but has clashed with the school board leadership during her five years in the job. She previously was superintendent in Derby.
