NORWICH – It’s official. Next year, one administrator will be in charge of both the Norwich High School and Middle School and that administrator will be current Middle School Principal Lisa Schuchman.
Schuchman’s appointment to the newly-created secondary principal position was approved by the Norwich City School District’s Board of Education Wednesday night, by a vote of 4 to 2. Tenure was also granted to the administrator on the recommendation of Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan, following a similar vote.
There will be challenges associated with joining the two buildings – and the roughly 1,100 students in grades 6 through 12 – under one administrative structure, the superintendent explained.
