Sara Pragluski Walsh, Ed.D will be filling the role of principal in the upcoming school year of 2017-2018.

Walsh is the current principal of the Springfield High School of Science and Technology. According to an email sent to the school community by Superintendent Christine Johnson, the past two years of Walsh’s employment have seen significant improvement in terms of achievement and student performance.

“She helped it grow from one that was identified by State standards as underperforming to a school that is now recognized through multiple awards as obtaining high levels of success in all educational metrics including academics, participation, and school climate,” Johnson’s email stated.

Walsh visited Algonquin on June 2 and met with students, teachers, and parents while familiarizing herself with Algonquin. Those who met with Walsh were encouraged to submit a survey of their feedback to Johnson.

“Dr. Walsh is described as a leader who sets the bar high for herself, her students and her educational team,” Johnson’s email stated. “She is an exceptional leader who is committed to inspiring others to reach beyond their own expectations.”

One of the open assistant principal positions is in the early stages of being filled. Johnson is accepting applications until June 13. According to Johnson, the district hopes to continue the search for the other assistant principal position if budget allows.
