John Prins (whom many parents know from his onstage role as "Oscar the rehearsal pianist" in the BHS hit performance of 42nd Street),believes that we must find ways to get all our publics to partner in providing the best education for Branford's children. With a UCONN BA in Political Science and MA in Labor Relations from Rutgers University, he applies his extensive training and experience in Organizational Development on the Strategic Planning and other school board committees.

He feels strongly that the arts and athletics are not "specials;" rather, to create high performing schools and ensure student academic excellence, they are as important as any core subject. As chairman of the Teaching & Learning Committee, he aims to continuously build on the conditions that have led to Branford Public Schools successes through the work of our outstanding teachers and administrators.

 John and his wife Ruth, a special education teacher in Fairfield, have two sons who are both pursuing terminal degrees in their chosen fields.
