NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — Norwalk’s schools superintendent has been appointed head of New London’s school district.

Manuel J. Rivera will resign his Norwalk job on Jan. 31.  Rivera, a native of New London, said he made the decision to “come back home” and make a difference in New London.

Rivera took over as superintendent for Norwalk Public Schools in July 2013. He was previously superintendent in Rochester Public Schools, where he began his career in education.

With an enrollment of about 11,000 students in 19 schools and an annual budget of about $168 million, the Norwalk district is about four times the size of New London.
