Roy-Hart's new principal

The Superintendent's message about the new principal...
As you are aware, over the past two months, the District has been involved in the search and selection of our next Middle School Principal. The process began by identifying those qualities most desired in a school leader. Six focus groups were held and a synthesis of the information gathered was used to post the position. Over fifty people contributed to the process of the selection, representing our administration, teachers, support staff and community partners. Twenty applicants expressed interest and six were formally interviewed for the position by the District leadership team. From there, two finalists were determined and interviewed by students, support staff, teachers, a community group and the Board of Education.
I am pleased to share that on the evening of February 1, our Board of Education accepted my recommendation to appoint Ms. Danielle Alterio as our new Middle School Principal. Ms. Alterio brings many years of experience as a classroom teacher, assistant principal and active member of her school community. A formal introduction to the school and community will take place later this month. It is expected that Ms. Alterio will begin her new position in the District on Monday, February 25.
