An Arizona school administrator who members of the Ridgefield School District Board of Directors consider “a rising star” has been hired as the district’s new superintendent.
Nathan McCann accepted the position March 21, a day after meeting with area residents during a community forum at the high school. He will begin the job July 1, replacing current Superintendent Art Edgerly, who announced in October that he would retire at the end of the school year.
McCann is superintendent of the 750-student Altar Valley School District in Arizona. He previously was principal of a high school and junior high school in Flowing Wells School District in Arizona.
