WESTFORD — Director of Pupil Services Courtney Moran has been selected as the new Assistant Superintendent for Westford Public Schools. 

The vote comes after a recommendation from Superintendent of Schools Christopher Chew during a May 31 School Committee meeting

With Kerry Clery’s departure from Westford Public Schools and appointment as the Interim Superintendent of Billerica Public Schools for next year, it left WPS with “a large vacancy [to fill] very quickly here in the district,” according to Chew.

“We’ve worked together for a long time, we know each other very well, and I feel like we’re able to complement each other in this leadership position,” Chew said. “I have the full confidence that Courtney [will] be a phenomenal assistant superintendent.”

Moran was recommended from her previous work in district’s administration, her special education background, and her prior experience in the Westford Public Schools. Much of her responsibilities will include human resource work. 

“I do support Courtney in this role. She is very knowledgeable…someone that has a historical view, has such a good understanding of regulations, and has that special ed background will only [be] an asset in this role,” Miller School Principal Melissa Boylan said.

Moran will begin her new role on July 1.
