incoming principal, Amy Fishkin, is recommending Carol Bartlik to take over her current job of assistant principal.
Bartlik's hire is expected to be up for a vote at tonight's Chappaqua school board meeting, at 7:45 p.m. at .
Fishkin's promotion to principal is effective for the coming school year. She was to move into a job that was vacated last year by Eric Byrne, who to the district's assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.
Below is a copy of Fishkin's announcement:
Dear Roaring Brook Families,
I am pleased to announce that, following a lengthy and intensive search, I am recommending the appointment of Mrs. Carol Bartlik for the position of assistant principal of Roaring Brook School. With nearly 300 applicants for the position, Mrs. Bartlik proved to be the best fit for our school community. Our search committee composed of teachers, parents, clerical staff and administrators had an opportunity to interview candidates, identifying a select number of finalists who returned for learning walks. It was through this process that Carol proved to be the right person to join our wonderful school community as our next assistant principal.
Mrs. Bartlik comes to us with over 20 years experience in elementary education. She began her career as a second grade teacher in White Plains, New York. After seven years as a classroom teacher, she became a reading teacher, first in the White Plains School District and then in the Bedford Central School District. She completed her Administrative Internship at the Bedford Village Elementary School. Mrs. Bartlik holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from SUNY Oswego and an M.A. in elementary education from Adelphi University. She earned her Ed.M. in Administration and Supervision from Bank Street College, as part of the Future School Leaders Academy, a partnership with Putnam‐Northern Westchester BOCES.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mrs. Carol Bartlik to Dr. Lyn McKay for the position of assistant principal of Roaring Brook School. I am confident that Carol will bring insight, warmth, and a commitment to learning that is a perfect match for our Roaring Brook School community. I anticipate that Dr. McKay will make a recommendation to the Board of Education at the June 19th Board meeting.
