Hello Ashford Community!

On December 15, 2022 I am very happy to accept the Superintendent position as a shared job with being the Director of Pupil Services.   We have entered into our budget season and am looking forward to continuing to move Ashford School forward post pandemic.   I have been a resident of Ashford since 2005 and have worked at the school since January of 2004, starting as a Special Education Teacher.  In 2012 I completed my 6th year in Educational Leadership as an intern Assistant Principal and then became the full time Assistant Principal in 2013.   In January of 2015 I stepped into the combined job of Assistant Principal and Director of Pupil Services, due to the death of our beloved Donna Hartigan.  Despite those being hard shoes to fill, I have continued to be the Director ever since.  During my time as Director, I did continue my education and earned my certification for Superintendent of Schools.  Ashford is my home and I love this community.  I have one child in Ashford School currently and one that just graduated from E.O.Smith High School and is off to Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.  I am excited for the opportunity to step in to assist during this transitional time and to work together to continue moving Ashford School forward.  Feel free to reach out to me with questions.  My email is cford@ashfordct.org.  My door is always open!

Cynthia Ford,  Superintendent/Director of Pupil Services
