SUMMIT, NJ - Lorena Dolan has been selected as assistant principal of Summit High School, filling the role vacated by Stacy Grimaldi, who was approved last month to succeed Paul Sears as Summit High School principal upon his retirement.

Dolan has worked in Summit since 2010 as a Special Education teacher at Summit High School, providing in-class support for a variety of classes and study skills. She previously worked at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School as a Special Education teacher, and possesses a MA in education from Rutgers University, as well as holding a certificate from the Educational Leadership Program at Montclair State University.
Her undergraduate degree is from the College of New Jersey in psychology and elementary education.

"After an intense search and a large number of applicants for the Summit High School Assistant Principal position, Ms. Dolan stood out as the right person for this role,” said Grimaldi. “Ms. Dolan has an outstanding knowledge of the Summit High School community and the district, and I am excited to have her join the high school administrative team."

As Assistant Principal, Dolan -- upon her approval by the Summit Board of Education -- will be responsible for coordinating standardized testing at the high school, including PARCC and NJBCT; PowerSchool and teacher gradebook oversight; scheduling; and discipline for two grade levels.

The Board of Education is expected to approve this recommendation at its February 18 regular meeting at Summit High School. The Board will host a reception for Dolan prior to the meeting, at 6:30 p.m., with all members of the community welcome to attend.

Summit Public Schools have stated that an announcement regarding the timing of the leadership transition at Summit High School will be forthcoming,
