NORWICH – Dr. Robert Cleveland will remain interim principal at the Norwich High School for another year following a decision by the district’s school board Wednesday night.
Acting on the recommendation of Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan, board members voted unanimously to approve a one-year contract for the administrator, whose previous contract expired on June 30.
“The district, and the high school in particular, is fortunate to have the help and experience from Dr. Cleveland,” O’Sullivan said. “Over the past year we’ve made great progress in student achievement and improved the educational program. We’re definitely moving in the right direction.”
Board member Joe Stagliano said he also considers it a good move for the district.
“What Dr. Cleveland brings is a second year of continuity at the high school,” Stagliano said. “(He) is a highly respected administrator.”..
