ARRSD Leadership Changes

Superchi and Williams in New Roles


ARRSD is pleased to announce that Molly Superchi has been appointed to the position of Director of Elementary Curriculum and Instruction and Jan Williams has been appointed to take over as the principal of the Royalston Community School.

Ms. Superchi is entering her third year at ARRSD, having spent the last two as the principal at the Royalston Community School. She will be stepping into the Director of Elementary Curriculum and Instruction position. She will be located at ACES and her position is funded by the School Redesign Grant. Throughout the hiring process it became clear that Ms. Superchi’s background in literacy, her experience with our current professional development, and her understanding of what work needs to be done with our elementary curriculum makes her a perfect fit for the position.

Jan Williams is entering her fourth year at ARRSD. She has been the principal of Riverbend/Sanders St. for the past three years, and she has been a successful principal in her previous district and in Athol. Her experience in the role of principal and her commitment and desire to support all students will be a valuable asset in Royalston. Jan will also remain the District’s Title I Director and Kindergarten Coordinator.

Both of these leadership moves were made with the best interest of students in mind. These moves allow the District to continue to move forward by not only utilizing staff who are familiar with our current status, but also by putting them in positions in which they are most likely to succeed.
