FRAMINGHAM – It was announced on Friday, May 28, that Framingham Assistant Superintendent of Schools Anne Ludes would be leaving the public school district at the end of the school year to become the new director of the Massachusetts Academy of Math & Science at WPI in Worcester.
Ann Ludes, who was promoted to the newly-created position of Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education in May of 2018, is leaving after 3 years in the role.
Tremblay in an email on May 28 told the School Committee “It is with incredibly mixed emotions that I write to tell you that Anne Ludes will be leaving the Framingham Public Schools to take on a new leadership position effective July 1, 2021.”
But in that same email, Tremblay said he was considering a restructuring of his central office state and possible elimination of one of his assistant superintendent of schools.
“As we look ahead to the structure of the Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) in the wake of Anne’s departure at the end of the school year, I am writing to let you know that I will be taking a hard look at the existing organizational structure and moving toward a single Assistant Superintendent for PreK-12 Education model,” said Tremblay to the 9-member School Committee.
Ludes was the assistant superintendent of secondary education, with Amy Bright, a former Stapleton Elementary School Principal, as the assistant superintendent of elementary education.
“As we move in this direction, it will be critical that Amy Bright – who will hold this singular position – have the necessary and focused elementary and secondary division oversight,” wrote Tremblay to the School Committee. “While more details, of course, will need to be worked out, I wanted to provide you with my thinking on this organizational shift, particularly as we engage in ongoing budget discussions.”
