Cambridge School Committee Appoints Dr. Victoria L. Greer as Superintendent
Posted on 02/02/2022
Dear CPS Community,

Over the past several months, the Cambridge School Committee has worked collaboratively with Dr. Greer in reopening schools for full-time, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. This evening, the Cambridge School Committee voted to remove the “interim” from Dr. Victoria L. Greer’s title effective January 1, 2022 and exercise the option in her contract to extend her employment with CPSD until June 30, 2023. The Committee reached this decision after completing a three-month evaluation of Dr. Greer, which included a public meeting, and following discussions with Dr. Greer regarding her interest in continuing with CPSD for an additional year. Through those processes it became apparent that the school district had an opportunity to maintain some stability and continuity of leadership in the district, and at the same time demonstrate support for the important work Dr. Greer is doing by making her appointment permanent through the 2022-2023 school year.

Dr. Greer was appointed Interim Superintendent effective July 1, 2021, after former Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Salim notified the Committee that he would be stepping down effective June 30, 2021. Dr. Greer has and will continue to fill a critical leadership role as CPSD navigates the unchartered and complicated task of remediating the pandemic’s effects on our students’ mental health, achievement, and on our educators and staff. Dr. Greer has worked very hard since returning to the District in July. We are grateful to continue this relationship and maintain stable leadership during this important time. We believe that by extending her contract and making her appointment permanent, our students, staff and community will continue to reap the benefits of her hard work.

In connection with this contract amendment, the Committee and Dr. Greer have agreed to provide each other with notice by June 30, 2022 if they wish to extend this agreement beyond the stated expiration agreement.

Sincerely,

Mayor Siddiqui, Esq.
Chair, Cambridge School Committee
