New assistant superintendent named

Jun 28, 2022

MATTAPOISETT — Veteran Abington educator Sharlene Fedorowicz has been named the new assistant superintendent of teaching and learning for the Old Rochester Regional school district following a unanimous vote by the Joint School Committee Monday, June 27. 

Federowicz, the director of curriculum, instruction and assessment for the Abington schools, will replace Jannell Pearson-Campbell, who left the position at the end of the school. Her departure was due to a change in personal circumstances, Superintendent of Schools Michael Nelson has said.

Nelson praised Fedorowicz for having a “proven track record’’ of success. He said she had a strong ability to listen, analyze and develop a plan of action.

April Nye, chair of the Marion School Committee and a member of the assistant superintendent search committee, noted that on her site visits to Abington, the students and faculty clearly knew who Federowicz was. She said she was impressed with the interaction and the “one-on-one engagement.’’

Rochester Memorial School principal Derek Medeiros, who also served on the search committee, expressed a similar sentiment. “She listens, she hears and she wants to hear people’s voices,’’ he said. 

After the affirmative vote, Federowicz thanked the committee and said everyone had been “welcoming.’’

She said she is excited about the job.“I’m ready to do some collaborative work,’’ she said.
