In less than 2 years, superintendent of schools Thomas Scarice has made a name as one of Westport’s most trusted leaders.
He’s also one of the most popular guests on “06880: The Podcast.”
The reasons for both are clear: He is a clear communicator. He speaks with clarity, and does not duck difficult issues. He has a vision, and — though he knows not everyone will agree with all, or even some, of it — he wants the town to hear it.
This week, Superintendent Scarice returns to the Westport Library’s Verso Studios. I asked about 2 main topics: the physical state of our school facilities, and the importance of connection and belonging among all who spend their days in those buildings.
