The district is pleased to announce that Dr. John Cassese has been approved to be the interim principal of Ruth C. Kinney Elementary School. Dr. Cassese has over 20 years experience as an elementary administrator and filled in for our district as principal of Timber Point Elementary School for a short time several years ago. Dr. Cassese will serve for approximately 30 days. During that time, a committee consisting of administrators, teachers and parental representatives will continue to interview candidates to be considered as RCK’s next principal. It is the committee’s intent to recommend finalists to Superintendent Dolan and the Board of Education for appointment at the next Board of Education meeting on Sept. 1.
