Wayland Schools superintendent resigns

Dr. Christina Hinds

Wayland Union Schools Superintendent, Dr. Christina Hinds, announced her resignation, effective June 30, 2022 to the Wayland Union Schools staff and community today. Dr. Hinds has served as the Wayland Union Superintendent since July 2020. She was recruited to become the next Deputy Superintendent of Northview Public Schools. Dr. Hinds said, “Although I was not looking for a new job, I was recruited with an opportunity I could not resist. As the next Deputy Superintendent of Northview Public Schools, I believe I will have an opportunity to fully explore my passion for the whole child, belonging, equity and access.” 
Dr. Hinds’ letter to the community stated:
“Mattie J.T. Stepanek stated, “Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” It is my hope that you will keep this quote in mind as the school district experiences another change and transition. When we keep our eyes fixed upon our students, we are united with a common purpose. Please keep the momentum going for our students… our strategic plan is in place, we are planning for our bond project in August, and we are continuously moving forward. I encourage you to warmly prepare to welcome in the next leader. Let your Wildcat Pride shine for all to see. This is Wayland UNION.”
Board President Dan Cassini, states, “Dr. Hinds has been a joy to work with and a great fit for navigating the pandemic for our district.  I will always consider her a cherished colleague because of the professional relationship we forged through adverse times.  It’s selfishly difficult to see Dr. Hinds depart our district but I know it’s an opportunity for her that I could in no way stand in the way of.  We are a better district because of her fingerprints that will remain.  I wish her and her family nothing but the best now and beyond. I hope she will remain in contact as she transitions into her new position.”
