Garfield RE-2 names new superintendent
Susan Birdsey has been named superintendent of Garfield School District RE-2.
Birdsey has been the district’s assistant superintendent since 2008 and has been with the district since 2005.
Birdsey was the only finalist for the superintendent position. She’ll replace Dave Smucker, who has accepted a superintendent post in Prescott, Ariz. Garfield RE-2’s assistant superintendent post will remain open until the district finishes an assessment of its needs.
The Rifle-based school district serves nearly 5,000 students in Rifle, Silt and New Castle.
