Shawsheen Tech Superintendent Tim Broadrick Announces Resignation for New Position

By: Rich Hosford

Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School’s superintendent is stepping down for a new opportunity a little over three years after getting the job.


According to a letter from Shawsheen Tech School Committee Timothy Broadrick notified the committee he is currently negotiating a contract with a “comprehensive school district in New Hampshire” and has submitted a letter of resignation. The news, the School Committee said, is something they are “deeply regretful to announce.”  


In the resignation letter Broadrick wrote “Many in our community know that I have previously expressed interest in making a transition from the world of vocational schools into the K-12 comprehensive school arena. I am pursuing a path that will afford me that opportunity while also allowing me the time and opportunity to complete a doctoral degree during the next few years.”


Broadrick started his career as a teacher in the district in 2004.


According to the letter from the School Committee they and Broadrick “are working together to create a plan that will allow the District to appoint and interim to guide the District durings its transition to a new superintendent.”


The School Committee letter also recognizes Broadrick for his work in the district and lists some of the accomplishments seen under his leadership.


“Since his appointment, the District has completed substantial facilities expansion and renovation projects, including the construction of a new outdoor athletic campus, renovation of the high school’s swimming pool, security upgrades to the high school building, installation of a new fire alarm system, and nearly $1 million in grant-funded equipment purchases,” the letter reads. “In the areas of curriculum and instruction, the school has added electives to its academic schedule, and this year students began enrolling in dual-enrollment courses with Middlesex Community College.”


Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School accepts students from Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington.
