Change of Leadership

Dear Sag Harbor Community,

It is with regret that the Board of Education has accepted the resignation of our Interim Superintendent, Ellie Tritt, at tonight’s Board of Education meeting.  In the short time that Ellie has served as our Interim Superintendent, she has left an unforgettable imprint on our district, setting an example for everyone through her great leadership, incredible work ethic, open-door approach and attention to detail.  We wish Ellie all of the best in her future endeavors.

Effective as of tomorrow, March 19, 2020, Jeff Nichols will be serving as both the Interim Superintendent as well as continuing in his role as High School Principal.  He has graciously accepted this dual role without additional compensation for the next thirty days, until April 19, 2020.  We thank Jeff from the bottom of our hearts for once again stepping up to lead our district, especially during such a challenging time.  During this thirty-day period, Ellie will continue to serve the district in the capacity of Assistant to the Interim Superintendent, so as to support Jeff during this transitional time.  

The Board of Education will take a few days to digest these changes, consider our options, and then will plan to re-convene at a later date to set a path for the district’s leadership after April 19, 2020.  

Please find Ellie Tritt’s resignation letter attached for reference.


Jordana Sobey, Board President, on behalf of SHUFSD Board of Education
