Dr. Rodrigue Biography (In PDF)


I feel privileged to serve as the Interim Superintendent of Schools.  What makes Newtown Public Schools so special is its deliberate investment in the practices that lead to quality teaching and learning.  However, the journey toward excellence is never complete.

As we look ahead, our goals for developing personalized academic, social, and emotional experiences for all students will remain at the forefront of our collective work.  The efforts of all staff will continue to focus on setting high expectations, developing engaging learning experiences, and establishing meaningful academic pathways that offer students purpose, challenge, and choice.

I look forward to working with the staff, students and families of Newtown in the months ahead.
