Last week the Weston school district learned it would need to launch a search for a new middle school assistant principal; this week it learned it will also have to find an assistant principal for the intermediate school.
The Weston Board of Education announced Tuesday, June 4, that Doreen O’Leary, assistant principal at Weston Intermediate School, will be leaving her post at the end of the month. Ms. O’Leary was appointed to be principal at Island Avenue Elementary School in Madison.
Ms. O’Leary has served as the assistant principal at Weston Intermediate School since 2012, and she was Assistant Principal at Hurlbutt Elementary School for two years prior to that.
Before coming to Weston, she was the project manager for the GE Foundation Developing Futures in Education Program at Stamford public schools. She served as the curriculum associate for elementary math for Stamford schools and was a third and fourth grade teacher in Stamford from 2001 to 2007.
Colleen Palmer, Weston superintendent, said, “Doreen has been an invaluable member of our leadership team and an exemplary assistant principal at both Hurlbutt Elementary School and Weston Intermediate School. Given her talent and level of expertise, she will make an excellent principal. We wish her all the best in her new position.”
Ms. O’Leary anticipates that she will transition to her new position on or about July 1.
The school board will immediately begin a search for a new assistant principal for Weston Intermediate School, and it is expected that a new assistant principal will be selected by the middle of July.
