The Waterford Graded School Board is seeking a new Superintendent to replace Edward Brzinski who is retiring at the end of this school year. School Board members are looking to gather input from both staff and our community in regards to the hiring of a new superintendent. To allow for input and to provide transparency, we will be conducting a meet and greet with the three finalists. The finalists will be at Trailside Elementary on Tuesday, February 1. Each candidate will rotate between a building tour, community forum hosted by Sloan Allen (Director of Curriculum and Student Growth) and Jane Aegerter (Director of Student and Staff Services), as well as a board interview. The forums will begin at 5:00 PM at Trailside Elementary School in the cafeteria on Tuesday, February 1. There will be an opportunity for you to write down questions for the staff facilitators to ask each candidate. The community and staff in attendance will observe and listen to the candidates answers and then complete a form with your feedback for the school board to consider when selecting the final candidate.

Meet Mrs. Alicia Burton, Principal Secretary at Woodfield Elementary. Hi! I’m Alicia Burton, secretary for Woodfield Elementary! This is my 5th year working in the Woodfield Office and my 10th year total working in the Waterford Graded School District. I live in Rochester with my husband, 4 kids, and 3 rescue dogs.

The Waterford Graded School District would like to welcome Mrs. Lisa Klass. Mrs. Klass is the principal's secretary at Fox River Middle School. Read more about Mrs. Klass below. Although this is my first year as Principal's Secretary, I have been serving Fox River Middle School students (literally) for the past four and a half years as the Lead of the Fox River dining staff. I am very excited to be transitioning to this new position! I have been taken aback by the welcoming reception I have received by both Fox River staff and parents. Our family moved to Waterford nearly six years ago and we absolutely love it here. I am still amazed by the sight of the Sandhill Cranes walking through a farmer's field or the Great Blue Herons flying overhead like Pteranodons. Listening to the frogs croak back and forth is my favorite way to fall asleep. This is truly an amazing area. I have been married for 30 years and have three grown children. The oldest is a new car dealership manager, the middle is learning the ropes of the family business, and the youngest is in her sophomore year of college studying nursing. In my spare time I love to travel. My husband and I have a goal of reaching all 50 states. I love a good road trip. Finding the best roadside oddities is my specialty. Who wouldn't pull off the highway to see the 55-foot tall Jolly Green Giant statue!
