Schenectady⁢ School Welcomes New ⁢Principal

SCHENECTADY ‍—⁢ Central Park Middle School Assistant Principal John⁤ Heim has assumed the principal’s position in the ​Schenectady school with Principal Karmen McEvoy​ out of the⁢ office for an undisclosed reason.

McEvoy’s absence has led to a temporary change in leadership at the school, with Heim stepping in⁣ to fill the ⁤role in the meantime.

In an email to faculty on Jan. 19, Tyrone O’Meally, ⁤district executive director of secondary schools, informed the staff that McEvoy would be out of the office and Heim would be serving in her absence.

O’Meally⁤ noted that district parents would ⁢also be ⁤informed of ‌the principal’s absence, ensuring transparency within the school community.

When asked about McEvoy’s absence, Board of⁤ Education President Bernice Rivera‍ deferred questions‌ on the matter to the district office, indicating that the situation is being handled internally.

District Director of Communication ‍and Public⁢ Information Karen Corona confirmed on Thursday that McEvoy was still⁢ out of the office, emphasizing the district’s commitment ‌to ‌respecting the privacy of its staff members.

“We don’t discuss personnel matters,” Corona wrote in an email response to a query ‌about the circumstances⁢ of the principal’s‍ absence, maintaining the school’s policy on confidentiality.

Corona‌ declined to specify the ⁣timeline for the principal’s potential ‌return to her position, indicating that ⁤the situation⁤ is still being ⁢assessed.

McEvoy’s extensive experience in ‌the district, spanning over two decades, highlights her dedication to the school community and‌ its students, making her absence⁣ notable within the school.

McEvoy’s career⁣ progression within the district, from a⁣ special education teacher to ⁣a principal, ‌showcases her commitment to education and the⁤ growth of the students she has served over the years.
