The Norwalk Board of Education and Norwalk Public Schools are deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of Mike Barbis. A member of the Board of Education since 2011, Mike was a passionate and knowledgeable advocate for Norwalk students and schools. During his tenure on the Board, he served as chair of the Finance Committee, Negotiations and Personnel Committee, and Facilities Committee, where he helped develop and oversee a new construction and renovation plan for the school district. He served as chairman of the Board from 2017-2019. Mike was also an active parent volunteer at Brien McMahon High School, as well as a tireless community volunteer in Rowayton and beyond.
Our hearts go out to all of Mike’s family and friends. Arrangements are pending for a memorial service to remember Mike. We will keep our school community informed of any plans and memorial details that the family would like to share.
