The Fairfield Board of Education has narrowed the field of superintendent candidates to one finalist, Dr. David Title. Title is currently the superintendent of schools in Bloomfield.

Title has a doctorate of administration in planning and social policy and a master's degree in educational administration, both from Harvard University. His B.A. is from Dartmouth College with a major in history and a minor in education.

Title's resume includes a list of professional accomplishments, including presentations to the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education, the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents, and the American Association of School Personnel Administrators. He also has authored articles in the Connecticut Journal of Educational Leadership.

Title is the recipient of the Connecticut Superintendent of the Year 2010, a six-time winner of the CABE Excellence in Education Communications and the University of Connecticut Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Award.

To help conduct the search for a new superintendent, the board hired the national superintendent search firm, Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates. The consultants met with members of the staff and community to develop the criteria that guided the search. Nationwide advertising was conducted.

Sue Brand, Fairfield Board of Education chairman, noted, "The Fairfield Board of Education is delighted to have a candidate that is so well qualified to be our next superintendant as Dr. Title. The board conducted an intensive search and evaluation process to find the best possible superintendent for Fairfield. We look forward to having the community and school staff meet Dr. Title before a final decision is reached."

The community is invited to meet Title on Tuesday, March 30, from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. at the Board of Education, 501 Kings Highway East, second floor board conference room; and on Wednesday, March 31, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Roger Ludlowe Middle School auditorium.
