I am pleased to announce the appointment of Albert Ganem, Jr. to the position of Manager of Staff Development effective Monday, September 16, 2013. Mr. Ganem has served the Worcester Public Schools for many years and brings to the position experiences and a full understanding of the direction of the district's instructional focus, as well as the support necessary to continue implementation of the new educator evaluation system.
Patricia Gaudette, retired principal of Jacob Hiatt Magnet School, has agreed to serve as interim principal at City View Discovery School for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year. She will work with Mr. Ganem beginning Tuesday, September 10, 2013 for transition the remainder of this week. Ms. Gaudette was tapped because of her successful tenure as principal, along with her experience in working with extended learning time, which is a component of the academic program at City View. The principal's position at City View will be posted in January 2014 and a full search will be undertaken to staff that position for the 2014-15 school year.
