Dr. Robert I. Shaps, Mamaroneck Superintendent of Schools has announced that at the April 24 work session, “ the Board of Education accepted the resignation of Ginny Lockwood, who has served as Principal at Mamaroneck Avenue School (MAS) for the past two years. During her time as Principal, Ms. Lockwood, a staunch advocate for children, has worked hard to build a caring learning environment for students and has sought to make MAS an exciting place to be. We thank her for her service and dedication. Ms. Lockwood’s resignation will take effect on June 30, 2018.
“At the same time, underscoring the importance of consistent leadership, the Board, upon my recommendation, has appointed MAS Assistant Principal Neill Alleva as Interim Principal for the 2018-2019 school year. In his short tenure so far at MAS, Mr. Alleva has proven to be a thoughtful, capable leader; I am confident he will carry on the inclusive culture and distinguishing strengths of the MAS community and help lead MAS to new heights.
“Mr. Alleva came to Mamaroneck with 15 years K-5 teaching experience in New York City Public Schools, including serving as an ELA teacher and many years as a science teacher. He places an emphasis on transforming school culture and instilling high expectations and a love of learning in both students and staff.
“Mr. Alleva completed his undergraduate degree from Temple University and received graduate degrees from St. John’s University and the College of St. Rose. He is in the process of also completing his doctoral degree in Education -- with a concentration in Organizational Leadership -- from Northeastern University.”
The Mamaroneck School District mourns the passing of former Mamaroneck School District Superintendent Dr. Paul Fried, who served the District from 2005 to 2010. His funeral was held April 25 at Temple Israel of Northern Westchester in Croton on Hudson.
