DRRSD Hires New Assistant Superintendent


The Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School Committee has approved the hire of Dr. Frederick Souza as the next Assistant Superintendent. “Landing Dr. Souza as our ‘Chief Academic Officer’ is a significant hire for our District,” said Superintendent Bill Runey. “Fred has been an established leader at both the building and District levels. His passion for student achievement and staff culture will quickly be apparent as we engage all stakeholders to show We Are DR.”

Souza, who earned his doctorate at Northeastern University, has served at Brennan Middle School in Attleboro for the past seven years, including the last six as principal. Prior to coming to Attleboro, he was the District K-12 Math Coordinator in Randolph and was the Math Department Head in Fall River.

School Committee Chair, Chris Andrade, shared the Superintendent’s enthusiasm, “We are thrilled to have Dr. Souza join our District and look forward to partnering with him to support our students, staff, and families.”

Souza remarked: “Within moments of arriving on campus, I knew that the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District was a place where I could plant roots and grow alongside this incredible community. I am so grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with so many hardworking individuals who share my passion and desire to educate and celebrate this unmatched group of students.”
