Parents and teachers will have a chance to meet and hear from the finalists being considered for the top post at Bakersville Elementary School. The school district is hosting a community forum to introduce the two candidates and offer an opportunity for the public to ask questions. Both candidates currently work in the Manchester School District.
The invited candidates are Cynthia Courounis, an assistant principal at the Middle School at Parkside; and Kate Josef, assistant principal at Jewett Street Elementary School.
“When we have two strong candidates for a principal position, forums like this have proven to be a wonderful way to further involve our families and faculty in selecting the best leader for their school,” said Superintendent Debra Livingston. “It’s also a valuable part of the interview process for the candidates to meet members of the school community.”
The incoming principal will replace Judy Adams, who is retiring after 13 years as the head of Bakersville School, and many years prior to that as a classroom teacher and reading specialist in Manchester.
