Patches report on new Portsmouth Superintendent

Portsmouth Patch is reporting that at last night's meeting, the Portsmouth School Committee announced the appointment of Dr. Lynn Krizic as the district's new superintendent.

In a spooky coincidence, Dr. Krizic comes to Portsmouth from a district called Elmhurst in Illinois.

What are the odds, eh?

There's some coverage of Dr. Krizic on the Elmhurst Patch, including this piece on the controversy around her non-renewal, and this story which indicates that she took a $40K pay cut to come to Portsmouth. The comments on this Patch Q&A are pretty harsh, but just remember that every community has their Eastside and SoPo.
