In a press release from the Board of Education, Superintendent David Abbey regretfully announced Hans Otto, manager of facilities, will leave New Canaan. He served as manger of facilities for almost 12 years.

"Mr. Otto has served the New Canaan Public Schools with his hard work, knowledge of facilities and creative energy during this time," the release said. "He has been a staunch advocate for pursuing environmentally safe practices and has saved the town money in implementing capital projects and managing operating expenses judiciously."

Otto is leaving this position for the role of manager of facilities in Darien. He will remain in New Canaan until April 8. The Board of Education has begun looking for Otto's replacement and "will continue until a talented and knowledgeable successor is found."
