Elementary School Principal Expected to Retire
Kenneth Kaplan, principal of Randall Carter Elementary School, expected to step down mid-August.
Kenneth Kaplan, principal of Randall Carter Elementary School, is expected to retire from the position in mid August.
The Board of Education is expected to accept Kaplan’s retirement at a meeting Thursday.
Kaplan could not be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon. District schools are closed for winter recess.
Kaplan’s retirement would begin Aug. 16, the agenda shows. His annual salary is approximately $152,000.
Kaplan’s pending retirement is the latest in a series of moves involving school administrators. New principals took over at several schools this year including George Washington and Schuyler-Colfax middle schools, Ryerson and Lafayette elementary schools, and Wayne Hills High School.
District officials are accepting applications for three “anticipated” principal positions, one each at a district elementary, middle and high school. The listings don’t specify what institutions candidates would be applying to work at.
Superintendent Ray Gonzalez previously said that soliciting resumes in such a manner is a “somewhat common practice” and helps the district “expand our database of qualified candidates.”
