Newtown official gets new position

Newtown (AP) - The head of the Connecticut school district where a gunman killed 20 elementary school students and six faculty members reportedly intends to take another job.

Newtown Schools Superintendent Janet Robinson tells The News-Times of Danbury on Monday she intends to accept an offer from the Stratford School District to become its new superintendent as of July 1.

The News-Times said Robinson has been praised for her leadership after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, but has clashed with the school board leadership. She previously was superintendent in Derby. She also had been the superintendent in Preston.
