Superintendent to retire in July


School Superintendent Barry Rabinovitch has announced his plan to retire on July 31 next year, citing a lackluster evaluation he received in October from the School Committee as the reason for his decision. In a written statement, Rabinovitch called the evaluation an “injustice,” noting that he had “served the Wareham public schools for the past 21 years honorably.” He added his belief that “the overriding goal of this evaluation was to deny me a raise. . . . By rating me ‘needs improvement,’ you have made my job more difficult.” Rabinovitch then added a long list of what he believed had been his successes over the last year. The superintendent wrote that he would “look back fondly” over his years in Wareham, and ended with “I am not saying farewell, because I have much work to do until I leave for retirement.”
