Bristol Elementary principal search continues
BRISTOL — Though the Bristol Elementary School board had initially hoped to announce a candidate for interim principal by May 20, that deadline has been extended by several weeks, according to Addison Northeast Supervisory Union Superintendent David Adams.
Current BES Principal Catrina DiNapoli announced last month that she would take on the role of director of curriculum and professional development at the ANeSU district office during the 2013-2014 academic year, filling in for Nancy Cornell who is taking a one-year leave of absence.
The search for an interim principal for Bristol Elementary has been extended until June 14. Adams said 19 applicants have already expressed interest in the position, many of whom are highly qualified educators and administrators. Though board members have narrowed the field to some degree and are pleased with the caliber of applicants, Adams said they were hoping to attract additional candidates in order to have the best possible pool to select from.
“It’s finding a match for an interim period that’s difficult,” Adams explained. “We only have a one-year position to offer.”
DiNapoli, who has been the principal at BES for four years, has the option of returning to her job after the 2013-2014 academic year.
