Dear Students, Families, Faculty and Staff:

I hope this message finds you well.

After an exhaustive search, last night the School Committee appointed Philip Conrad as the next Superintendent of Bedford Public Schools. 

Mr. Conrad, who currently serves as principal of Andover High School, brings a strong student focus and thoughtful, collaborative approach to the position. Not only does Mr. Conrad possess the skills and experience to lead our district, he lights up when talking about his students. He will start his new position in July, and I am excited to have him join us to continue and expand upon the excellent work Superintendent Jon Sills has done on behalf of our students.

Later in the spring Mr. Conrad will be invited to Bedford and Boston to meet students, families, faculty, staff and community members.

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts on what Bedford needs in its next superintendent, and your feedback on the finalists for the position.

Wishing you good health in these challenging times.


JoAnn Santiago

Chair, Bedford School Committee
