Korb looks back on 15 years as school head


While he said financial challenges are expected to continue, the district is in good shape for Bill Hart, who will succeed him July 1. Hart comes to town after being an assistant superintendent for the Pentucket Regional School District.

Korb said an override might be needed in the future to sustain the district.

“Nobody likes to hear that, but that is the reality,” he said.

School Committee chairman Hugh O’Flynn said Korb helped transform the district in terms of curriculum, site-based management, technology and overall reputation.

“The performance of our district really improved,” O’Flynn said. “We’ll miss him terribly.”

Korb said it is an honor to end his career in Ipswich, and he’ll miss working with his “outstanding, dedicated staff” and the support he’s received from the community.

“We’ve had a lot of great people who have made this district what it is,” he said. “There is such a great culture here.”
