Superintendent's Office


The superintendent’s office is located in the Emery Grover Building at 1330 Highland Avenue.  The superintendent works closely with the district’s administrators, principals, town officials, and elected School Committee members to ensure a high quality education is available to each student in the Needham Public Schools.

Parents, students, and community members are encouraged to contact the superintendent to ask questions and to discuss ideas and concerns about the Needham Public Schools.  The superintendent’s email address is: dan_gutekanst@needham.k12.ma.us

Parents who may have a concern about their child or a school program should, of course, first contact the child’s teacher and/or the school principal before contacting the superintendent.  Most concerns and questions are handled more quickly and efficiently when a parent directs his or her problem to the individuals directly involved or responsible.
