Joanna Genovese, the principal of Hurlbutt Elementary School, has resigned.
Lewis Brey, director of human resources, stated in a press release that Ms. Genovese has resigned her employment with the Weston Public Schools effective immediately due to a lapse in her administrator certification.
He said the district has already begun its search for an interim principal for Hurlbutt Elementary School to serve for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year.
Kenneth Craw, assistant superintendent of schools, will serve as temporary interim principal until an interim principal is in place.
The district will begin its search for a permanent principal of Hurlbutt Elementary School in January 2013 with the goal of appointing a new principal effective on or about July 1, 2013, Mr. Brey said.
Joanna Genovese was principal of Hurlbutt since 2005. Before that she was the school’s assistant principal.
The Weston Board of Education had planned to discuss Ms. Genovese’s certification issue in an executive session at tonight’s school board meeting. However, due to inclement weather, tonight’s meeting has been canceled.
