The Newtown Board of Education held a special meeting Tuesday night before their regularly scheduled meeting. One of the items on the agenda was to hold the High School Principal search consultant focus group meeting.
Newtown school officials say the candidate should have the ability to lead through open communication and consensus building; have a knowledge of best practices in teaching and instructional technology; and a working knowledge of Common Core Curriculum.
The Board of Education at their regular meeting received the retirement announcement of Middle School Assistant Principal Tony Salvatore. He is leaving the school district after 20 years teaching and 15 years as an administrator.
