Cornwall brings top candidate for principal in for an interview

CORNWALL — The Cornwall community is scheduled to meet with, and potentially hire, the finalist for the Bingham Memorial School principalship: Susan M. Hackett. Hackett is a Proctor resident who currently works as a reading intervention teacher at the Rutland Town School and as afterschool site coordinator at the Clarendon Elementary School. Her resume includes stints as principal of Plymouth Elementary School, director of the Addison County branch of the Building Bright Futures early childhood program, and principal of the Sunderland Elementary School.
Hackett’s daylong visit to Bingham Memorial School on June 4 will include sitting in on classes in each grade (from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.); chatting with parents and other residents from 3 to 4:30 p.m.; and dinner, followed by more conversation with the community and school officials from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Cornwall school directors are scheduled to meet at the school at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 6, to interview Hackett and potentially offer her the job.
The Cornwall Search Committee received 28 applications for the position, soon to be vacated by current Principal Denise Goodnow, who will become co-principal of the Thatcher Brook Primary School in Waterbury. Of the 28 applicants, 13 were selected for consideration, of which five were flagged for interviews. One of the five withdrew in order to accept a job elsewhere. Hackett emerged as the top choice from among the four remaining interviewees, according to Vicki Wells, chairwoman of the search committee.
