After 35 years with the Manchester School District, Assistant Superintendent Karen Burkush will retire at the end of this school year, effective June 30, 2015.
“I have enjoyed my career here in the school district,” said Burkush. “I’ve had the privilege of working with many amazing individuals, including faculty, staff, students and parents.”
Burkush’s first position in 1980 was as speech pathologist for pre-k through sixth grade students. She also served as Child Find facilitator, special education coordinator, assistant director of student services and then director of student services before becoming assistant superintendent in 2004.
“We thank Karen for her many years of service to our schools and students and wish her well,” said Superintendent Debra Livingston. “Her skills, experience and historical perspective have been a valuable part of our administration.”
