Bedford superintendent to call it a career in June
School Board Chairman Terry Wolf said the board has entered into contract negotiations with McGee and expects a successful agreement to be announced soon. McGee has served as Bedford’s assistant superintendent of curriculum and assessments for 10 years.
Mayes and his wife, Karen, will celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary in June. She is a special education teacher in Amherst, and recently announced her retirement as well. Mayes said he’s looking forward to some time off with his family.
“This is a recognition of what the community does and what parents do in addition to the students and staff,” said Mayes in September. “I think when you look at a lot of different metrics, such as parental involvement, how kids do on state and federal tests and the cost per pupil, the results are very good.”
McGee, 43, grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated with a history degree at Brown University in Rhode Island. He earned a master’s in business administration at Columbia Business School, and a doctorate in education from Columbia University in a joint program. He taught physical science and history at the Beacon School in New York City, which has a reputation as the best high school in the city, he said.
McGee said he is grateful to have worked with Mayes over the past 10 years and is looking forward to what he and the district will be able to do in the next few years.
The changes, he said, will occur in technology, global competition and developing programs that will challenge all students.
