Finalist met public in reopened Stratton principal search

Stratton sign

Michael Hanna, the principal of Village School (grades 4-6) in Marblehead, and a finalist to be principal at Stratton, is scheduled to meet the public Tuesday, June 5.

In an email to Stratton parents and guardians June 3, Superintendent Kathleen Bodie noted that she reopened the Stratton search after April vacation and that the search committee has "interviewed a few candidates in the last couple of weeks."

Hanna is to meet with all stakeholders. The parent forum is set for 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the Stratton library. As in past forums, parents will have the opportunity to provide written feedback to Bodie.

Hanna holds a master of education in organizational management, as well as a masters of arts in philosophy. He is enrolled in a doctoral program in educational leadership at Lesley University.

In March, three finalists to be principal of the Stratton School were identified, and they met the public in early April. None was chosen, and the search was reopened.

The three were Maureen Devlin, associate head of school of the Rio Grande School in Santa Fe, N.M.; Bridget Harris, who has been a principal, assistant principal, curriculum supervisor and classroom teacher in the West Irondequoit Central School District in Rochester, N.Y.; and Shamus Brady, an Arliongton High grad who is the interim assistant principal for the Clark Avenue Middle School in Chelsea.

Sheri Donovan is the principal of Thompson and Stratton for this school year. Groundbreaking for the $20 million school has taken place, and work is underway and continues through the next school year. A new Stratton principal is expected to be in place by summer.

Longtime Stratton Principal Alan Brown retired last June.
