NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. — Scott Bazydlo, principal of Peaslee Elementary School, announced last week that he will be leaving his current job at the end of this school year to take the position of principal at the Russell Street School in Littleton, Massachusetts.
"It's a great opportunity for me, geographically, and for my family right now," Bazydlo said of his new job. "It's a great challenge for me, professionally."
Bazydlo, who has served as Peaslee's principal for four years, said that he was most proud of working with his staff and fellow administrators to improve literacy instruction.
"It's really been an honor to be here and to work with the students," he said.
"We're going to miss him something awful," Superintendent Charles Gobron said. "He certainly left his mark on the school."
With Bazydlo's departure, Gobron announced the formation of a screening and interview committee to choose his replacement. The committee will be chaired by Assistant Superintendent Christine Johnson and will be made up of three teachers, three parents, a Northborough principal, a non-instructional staff member, a School Committee member and a central office administrator.
Committee members will be responsible for reading the resumes of all applicants, narrowing down the applicants for interviews, reviewing interview questions, interviewing applicants and recommending semi-finalists to the Superintendent’s Office.
Members must be able to meet on April 24-25 from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m., as well as for the full day on April 30 and May 1 for interviews.
Those interested in serving on the committee should submit their name in writing to Cheryl Lepore at the Superintendent’s Office or via email at email@example.com by April 4.
The first organizational meeting is planned for April 12 at 3:30 p.m. at Peaslee School.
