UPDATE: It turns out Bridgeport’s superintendent pool is back to two.
On Tuesday, a day after school board members were informed that Angella Katrise Perera was dropping out of the running for superintendent, Perera decided she may “something to offer the district.” Perera had dropped out of the running on Sunday, after receiving “inappropriate” messages on twitter. She has not thus far disclosed the contents of those messages.

The candidate forum was rescheduled for next Tuesday, March 14th. The event is open to the public, will start at 6 P.M., at Geraldine Johnson School.
For more on this, the Connecticut Post has the story:
“On Monday, during a telephone interview with Hearst Connecticut Media, Perera said that one of the reasons she had backed out was that she had received inappropriate messages that “didn’t leave a good taste in her mouth.”
Larcheveque said that after having a day to think about it, she asked to be reconsidered.
“We thought it only fair,” Larcheveque said, not only to Perera but the board’s other finalist, Interim Schools Superintendent Aresta Johnson, as well.
“She realized she had something to offer the district,” Larcheveque said.
A candidate forum scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed until Tuesday, March 14, at 6 p.m., where both Perera and Johnson are expected to make presentations and answer questions. The forum is set for Johnson School on Lexington Avenue.”
