Zachery, COO for Stratford Schools, to take post in Stamford
STRATFORD — Clarence Zachery, the chief operating officer for the Stratford school district, has been appointed to a similar position with Stamford public schools.
Zachery has been COO in the Stratford school district since 2013. In Stamford, he’ll be the chief fiscal and operations support officer, the school district announced late Tuesday; he’ll begin the new post on July 1.
In Stamford, Zachery will lead and manage the district’s “operations support,” which including finance, facilities management, technology, food service, transportation and security, according to school officials there.
Prior to his Stratford appointment, Zachery worked for Derby schools, Yale University, BMGC Holdings and JPMorgan Chase. He has a bachelor’s degree from Yale and an MBA and a law degree from Georgetown University.
Stratford has an annual school budget of about $108 million budget, 13 schools and an enrollment of 7,500.
Zachery’s appointment was part of what was described as a “reorganization” of the Stamford school administration. Tamu Lucero, the elementary level assistant superintendent, was named as the deputy superintendent, and Michael Fernandes, the secondary school assistant superintendent, will be the new associate superintendent for intervention and student support services.
Other top-level positions will be announced soon, Stamford school officials said.
