Clayton School District superintendent Don Senti announced today that he will retire in 2010. Dr. Senti has been Clayton’s superintendent since 1995.
This news will catch the attention not only of Clayton parents, but of many City parents as well. Over the years, hundreds of City children have been enrolled in Clayton’s public schools as part of the inter-district transfer program. Dr. Senti’s strong personal and continuing commitment to educating children in a diverse environment has made the experiences of both City and Clayton students far richer than they otherwise would have been.
I have always thought of Dr. Senti as one of the region’s education heroes. I congratulate him on a career that has made a real difference for so many people.
