MANCHESTER, NH – Parents, teachers and interested members of the public will have a chance to meet and hear from the finalists being considered for the top post at Henry Wilson 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.
The invited candidates are:
Polly Golden, currently director of federal projects and professional development for Manchester School District. Prior to coming to Manchester in 2012, Golden was principal at Milton Elementary School in Milton, NH;
Chris MacDonald, currently assistant principal at Northwest Elementary School in Manchester since 2008.
Their experience includes curriculum development and implementation, school improvement initiatives, and educator evaluations. Both Golden and MacDonald were classroom teachers earlier in their careers.
“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 opening was unscheduled, as previous principal, Kim Organek, tendered her resignation in August after her husband took a job out of state, according to a district spokesperson.
