Craig Consigli, Milford’s Next Assistant School Superintendent

Woodland Elementary School Principal Craig Consigli will be the next Assistant Superintendent of Milford Public Schools after his appointment received unanimous approval from the School Committee last week.

Consigli was chosen from over 63 candidates to take the post that will be left vacant by current Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kevin McIntyre when he becomes Superintendent in July.

Having worked in the Milford Public Schools for almost 20 years, Consigli has held a number of teacher and administrator roles, including Principal of Middle School East before becoming Principal at Woodland four years ago. Consigli has a Bachelor's degree from Plymouth State College and a Masters of Education degree from Fitchburg State University. He also holds a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Education Leadership from Bridgewater State University.

"I said to him four years ago [when Consigli became Principal of Woodland], there is no doubt in my mind that someday you will become the Superintendent of the Milford Public Schools," said School Committee Member Patrick Holland during a March 3 meeting to confirm Consigli's appointment.

Holland wasn't the only one who voiced support of the appointment. "I have had the opportunity to observe Craig [Consigli] while on the School Committee and as a parent," said Committee Member Joseph Morias. "I am impressed with how well he interacts with kids and teachers...he gets everyone to pull in the same direction."

McIntyre told the Committee that some of the things that made Consigli stand out from the rest of the candidates were his leadership skills, innovative Professional Development, and his future growth potential. "I thought about who would be able to replace me," said McIntyre, referring to the School Committees recommendation that he consider succession planning when choosing candidates.

"I am truly appreciative of the opportunities that I have been afforded during my career in Milford," said Consigli in a statement about his appointment. "There is no other place I would rather work. I have been fortunate to work for great leaders and alongside great educators from whom I have learned so much."

Consigli said that while he enjoys his current position "especially the staff, students and families at Woodland," he looks forward to becoming the next Assistant Superintendent of Milford Public Schools.

"I look forward to my new position and working closely with Dr. McIntyre to support teaching and learning in the district, while supporting the Woodland administration as they transition to the new state-of-the-art Woodland Elementary School," he said.

Although the Committee approved of the choice, some expressed concerns about the process.

"In the future, when we make a statement of how things are going to go, we should see the process through," said Committee Chairman Michael Walsh. Walsh was referring to a February 25 Committee Meeting, where McIntyre told the Committee that the hiring committee was currently screening the narrowed down list of 10 candidates, and would be presenting 2-3 finalists to the Committee during the March 17 meeting.

McIntyre responded that the hiring committee was unanimous in their decision to recommend Consigli for the job.

"Because the Committee was unanimous and so enthusiastic, we decided to make this recommendation," he said.

Now that Consigli was approved as the new Assistant Superintendent, the hiring process will begin for a new Woodland Principal. McIntyre said that the post will stay open until March 25. Once a committee of teachers, administrators, and PTO and Student Council representatives vet out the candidates, a group of 2-3 finalists will be presented during forums in mid-April, and of those, one candidate will be presented to the School Committee for approval during the April 28 School Committee Meeting.
