MASSENA — The Massena Central School district will have two new principals following a recent slew of appointments during a special Board of Education meeting on Aug. 1.
Jefferson Elementary School sixth grade teacher Nicole Terminelli has been appointed as Madison Elementary School’s principal.Terminelli replaces William Jaggers, who moves into a new role as a high school science teacher, officials say.
According to school officials, Terminelli is involved in the district’s Positivity Project and assists in training teachers on New York State assessments and curriculum alignment.
Terminelli is also a St. Lawrence County legislator, serving residents in District 14.
Officials say Jaggers will undertake launching a new career and technology education program with technology teacher John Root. The program will be designed for ninth and tenth grade students.
Also appointed during the meeting was Kendra Quinlan, who will take over as J.W. Leary Junior High School principal.
Quinlan replaces Amanda Zullo, who has moved on to Tupper Lake Central School to become the high school principal there.
Quinlan’s previous experience includes work as a counselor for St. Lawrence-Lewis Board of Cooperative Educational Services.
Officials say the meeting was called to approve a number of hires and appointments, with significant numbers of retirees this year that generated a number of openings.
