Wareham Elementary School to have one principal

Aug 5, 2021

When it opens, it is expected that Wareham Elementary School will have only one principal. 

During an Aug. 5 School Committee meeting, Superintendent Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood said she planned to recommend a one-principal approach for the new school — reversing a plan for two principals that had been discussed in June.

Shaver-Hood said she’d been discussing consolidating to a single principal with John W. Decas Elementary School Principal Bethany Chandler, Minot Forest Elementary School Principal Joan Seamans and other school personnel. 

The Wareham Elementary School principal will be announced “in a very short time,” Shaver-Hood said. 

“The other principal will be moving into central office,” she explained. “We have a number of duties that need to be taken care of, [...] we have some oversight that needs to be done — and so that will be the role of the other principal.”
