Jackie Herman, the Principal at Trinity Elementary School in New Rochelle will not return to her position after a two year maternity leave. She has been the Principal at Trinity for four years, two of them have been spent on leave after the birth of her second set of twins. As of the latest information, Richard McMahon will not return as Interim Principal for a third year. It has come to our attention here at New Rochelle Community Pulse that a search will be opened a new principal. Although the City School District leadership at City Hall has known this information for quite some time, as of February 26th, 2009 the position of Principal for Trinity has not been posted nor advertised.
It is extremely important for the children and families at Trinity for the City School District Leadership to end this revolving door of School Leadership at Trinity Elementary School. As many may know, just four years ago, Trinity had a complete turnover in leadership. At that time Mr. Rolando Briceño became Assistant Principal. Prior to Mr. Briceño, there was another Assistant Principal who was only at Trinity for only two years. During their tenure, the current 5th graders at Trinity have seen three different Principals, three different Assistant Principals and two different Administrative Assistants. After so much change in leadership, anyone taking the reigns of the Principalship will surely find it to be a daunting task.
Stakeholders should stay tuned and watch this one closely.
