CSD to Begin PPS Principal Search

Colchester School District will soon begin its pursuit of a principal for Porters Point School.

As is described in the position’s posting, the district seeks an individual to assume full responsibility for the daily operation and supervision of assigned school staff, programs, and facilities. In this role, he/she will involve parents, students, staff members, central office, and the community at large, as appropriate.

A selection committee consisting of teachers, administrators, parents, and other community members will screen and interview candidates, recommend final candidates to the Colchester School Board, and more; some members of the committee will also visit the candidates’ current schools as part of the search process.

PPS Principal Jim Marshall will retire at the close of this school year after an illustrious three-decades-long career. Identifying an educator qualified to assume his role is important, and the district is already mobilizing to ensure a comprehensive search and a smooth transition. Our plan is to recommend candidates to the school board during the week of March 31, 2014.
