Welcome Mr. David B. Erwin!

Please join the Sprague Board of Education in welcoming
Mr. David B. Erwin
as the Superintendent of Schools in the Sprague School District.

Welcome to our wonderful school community! 


David Erwin

The Board of Education began the search process for a new superintendent in July and candidates were interviewed by a broad-based committee of individuals from the school and the community. 

The Board also held interviews with the final candidates to make certain that the person selected fit the profile of what the community desired.  Michael Smith, Chair of the Sprague Board of Education, commented that this was the missing piece to make our Administrative team complete, “Mr. Erwin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and will be integral in moving Sayles School forward into the future.”

Mr. Erwin, a Waterbury, CT native began his career in 1975 as a language arts teacher in the Waterbury Public Schools. He has also been a teacher in the Region 15 school district (Middlebury/Southbury). He has served in numerous roles during his 43 year career in education. In addition to his teaching, he has been a principal in both the Madison Public Schools and the Trumbull Public Schools. He served as both assistant superintendent and superintendent in the Clinton Public Schools and was superintendent in the Montville Public Schools for a decade from 1999-2009. During this time, Sprague developed a partnership with Montville for students interested to attend Montville High School. Currently he is the superintendent of schools in the Berlin Public Schools.

Since 1994 Mr. Erwin has been an adjunct professor in the department of educational leadership at Sacred Heart University, both at the Griswold campus as well as at the main campus in Fairfield. Mr. Erwin is also an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut where he teaches in the TCPCG (Teacher Certification Program for College Graduates) Program. Mr. Erwin was selected as the University of Connecticut Neag School of Education Outstanding School Superintendent in 2005 and was chosen as the Connecticut School Superintendent of the Year in 2006. Mr. Erwin also serves on the Board of Directors of NESDEC.

When reached for comment Erwin said, “I was extremely impressed with the interview process. It was most evident to me that people are very proud of the school and want it to get even better. I am very thankful for the confidence the Board and the committee had in selecting me. I am excited about starting in January and look forward to working with students, staff, parents, the Board and the community.”

Erwin resides in Middlebury, CT with his wife Linda, a retired educator. They are parents of three adult sons: Brian, Chris and Ben and have three grandchildren:  Bryce, Alexander and Rose.
