The Biddeford School Committee on Tuesday unanimously appointed a veteran administrator as the district’s assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction.

Chris Indorf comes to Biddeford from Thornton Academy in Saco, where he has worked for 15 years, most recently as the associate head of teaching and learning. During the past four years, he helped supervise a teaching staff of 125 and had led projects ranging from curriculum expansion to building renovations.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the leadership team of the Biddeford School Department. The school committee and superintendent have a bold strategic plan for school improvement,” Indorf said in a prepared statement. “Community partnerships, a flexible and progressive curriculum and assessment plan, a renewed sense of dynamism at the Center of Technology, and literacy intervention work at the elementary level are just some of the exciting things that are happening in Biddeford.”

Indorf, who lives in Saco, is a graduate of Marshwood High School in Eliot and the University of Maine in Farmington. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of New England in 2008 and recently completed a Certificate in Advanced Graduate Studies in educational leadership at the University of Southern Maine.
