A Special Announcement:

Friends and Families of Clayton,

I am pleased to announce that the Clayton Board of Education has appointed a new Superintendent of Clayton Public Schools.  He is our own Mr. Nikolaos Koutsogiannis who is currently the Principal of Clayton High School/Middle School.  Mr. “K” as he is affectionately called by students and staff has been with our District for eight and a half years.  He has a BA in Political Science from Temple University and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Wilmington University.  Mr. Koutsogiannis previously taught in the Camden Public Schools system and served as a Vice Principal at Eastern Regional High School.  He is married with four children and lives locally in Gloucester County.  Mr. Koutsogiannis looks forward to taking over his new role as Superintendent on January 3, 2017.  Replacing Mr. Koutsogiannis as the Interim Principal of Clayton High School/Middle School is Mr. Joseph Sottosanti, a retired Principal of Delsea High School.  Mr. Sottosanti will start on January 3, 2017 and serve in this position until June 30, 2017 while the District conducts a search for a new High/Middle School Principal.

Cleve W. Bryan, Interim Superintendent
