Dear Concrete School District Community:
This has been a heart-wrenching week for all of us. It was a terrible shock to lose Superintendent Barrett suddenly. As a board, we are deeply grateful to Concrete School District staff, our larger community, and the many friends and colleagues from neighboring districts who have pulled together to wrap our students and schools in care and support at this challenging time.
The Concrete School District Board of Directors appointed Carrie Crickmore as the new interim superintendent at the May 3, 2023 special school board meeting. Ms. Crickmore has a diverse range of skills, having served the district in a variety of roles, including the Director of State and Federal Programs, Curriculum Director, Assessment Coordinator, Human Resources, and previous Special Education Director. We are confident that she has the ability to collaborate effectively with others and to provide thoughtful leadership for the benefit of all students, staff, and families. Her primary focus will be to support our teachers and staff as they maintain continuity for our students through this time of transition.
We will continue to keep you informed as we determine the next steps for moving the district forward. In the meantime, please take good care of yourselves and each other. Life is precious, and being in a community such as ours is a deep comfort.
The Concrete School District Board of Directors
