NEW FAIRFIELD — After working his way up the ranks over the last several years, Paul Gouveia now finds himself in charge of overseeing all the school district’s technology needs.

The Board of Education recently voted to appoint the New Fairfield resident to the position of technology director.

“I’m honored and extremely happy to get started,” Gouveia said following the school board’s Thursday evening vote.

As technology director, Gouveia — who started his new role Friday — said he’s responsible for overseeing planning, implementation and maintenance of technology for the schools, as well as the town.

Superintendent Kenneth Craw said technology director is a “critical position,” and he’s confident in Gouveia’s abilities.

“When I see his references and hear from people about what he did (during COVID) to keep us going in terms of the network and opportunities for distance learning, that’s to be commended,” Craw said during Thursday’s school board meeting. “Having earned the respect and admiration of colleagues, he’s ready to take on this role.”

Gouveia has served the school district in various technology-related capacities over the last five years.
