Ridgefield Public Schools has hired Allan Cameron to serve as its interim business manager. Cameron previously served as director of finance for Shelton Public Schools from 1995 to 2013. Before that, Cameron worked in a managerial role at General Electric. Most recently, he served as an interim business manager in Brookfield.

“He’s spent two or three days in district with us, and is working to get up to speed in order to help drive stability and continuous improvement,” Superintendent Karen Baldwin said at the Jan. 22 Board of Education meeting.

The position was left empty at the end of 2017, when former Business Manager Paul Hendrickson announced his retirement on Dec. 22.
