Dear Harrington Park Community,

As we all know, Harrington Park School District is a very special place.  At the start of each new school year, I reflect on how fortunate I am as I get the opportunity to welcome back our students and look forward to educating and enriching their lives for the better.  Without our dedicated staff, administrators, and our enthusiastic students, this would not be possible.

As I am so proud of this district and all the people that are a part of it, it is with a very heavy heart that I let you know that I am resigning from my position as Superintendent of Harrington Park School District, effective January 1, 2023.  My years at Harrington Park School have been some of the best of my life.  I will cherish the time spent here and hold a special place in my heart for all the students, staff, and community members that I have had the pleasure of getting to know.  I am also pleased that during my tenure, the District has accomplished great things, and I am proud to have played a small role in helping that happen.  None of it would have been possible without your support, and I continue to be grateful for that.  It has been an absolute honor serving with you over the past seventeen years during some of the most challenging times any educator has faced.   I have absolute confidence in the team and their abilities to continue what has been created here in Harrington Park.     

The Board of Education and the Harrington Park Family can be comfortable in knowing that I will dedicate the necessary time and effort to the next person who will “Lead the Way” in this wonderful district. 

With gratitude, 

Adam D. Fried, Ed.D
