Special Statement from Superintendent

Special Statement from Superintendent

Special statement from Superintendent Dr. Jay Owens:

“At its meeting on August 16, the Indian River Board of Education approved Dr. Judith Brittingham as the Acting Principal of Sussex Central High School, effective immediately. In addition, Dr. Tara Thoroughgood has been named the district’s Acting Director of Special Education.

"These are acting positions of uncertain duration while the district awaits additional information.

"We are pleased to have someone of Dr. Brittingham’s experience and expertise leading Sussex Central High School as we prepare to open the 2023-2024 school year. Judi has previous experience as a school principal in our district and is a former assistant principal at SCHS. Judi is a gifted administrator who will have the best interests of SCHS students and staff at heart moving forward.

"Dr. Thoroughgood has served as the district’s Supervisor of Special Education for several years and is more than qualified to fill the director’s position as Dr. Brittingham transitions into her new role. We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Tara’s expertise on the district’s administrative team. We welcome Dr. Brittingham and Dr. Thoroughgood to their new positions.”
