JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown School Board will hold a meeting Wednesday night at the administration building on Martin Road for a regular board meeting. Among the items that will be acted on is the appointment of a new principal to Jamestown High School.
Last week Jamestown Superintendent Bret Apthorpe told WRFA he was looking forward to introducing the new principal to the community. He couldn’t give many details until it becomes official, but did indicate the next high school principal would be a female.
“The new principal will be there, I believe, with the family and she’ll be addressing the board,” Apthorpe said. “We did a Pennsylvania-New York State-wide search. We had 16 great applicants and we’re very excited that Wednesday we’ll be able to share with the public the name of the new principal and she’ll be able to start on July 1.”
The new principal will be replacing outgoing principal Micheal McElrath, who is going to oversee the operations of the soon-to-be-opened Success Academy at the former Rogers School.
Wednesday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. and is open to the public.
