Essex Aggie superintendent to resign

DANVERS — DANVERS — Roger Bourgeois, superintendent of Essex Agricultural and Technical High School, will resign April 1.

Bourgeois has been hired by the Boston Public Schools as assistant superintendent for technical/vocational network. He has worked at Essex Aggie since 2007.

Joseph Edwards, chairman of Essex Aggie's board of trustees, said the board accepted Bourgeois' letter of resignation last week. The board's personnel subcommittee will meet next week and will likely recommend an interim superintendent to fill out the remainder of the school year, Edwards said.

Essex Aggie is set to merge with North Shore Technical High School and Peabody's high school vocational programs in a new, 1,440 student school slated to open in 2014. Students from all Cape Ann's communities attend Essex Aggie and North Shore.

In June, Essex Aggie's board of trustees approved a contract for Bourgeois that lasts through the 2013-2014 school year.

In Boston, Bourgeois will be responsible for leading efforts to expand and enhance the district's technical and vocational programs.
