Dr. John Rizzo was announced as the choice by incoming schools superintendent Matthew D’Andrea Thursday morning. Mr. Rizzo is currently principal at the Milton Bradley School Springfield. He begins work August 1.
John Rizzo, an elementary school principal from Springfield, and Phyllis Dubina, an assistant superintendent for the Beverly public schools, are in the final running. Public visits are planned for Monday and Tuesday at the Oak Bluffs School.
Wedged between her parents, each hand attached to one of theirs, Hannah McCormick approached the Oak Bluffs School. She wore a favorite light pink dress and colorful sneakers that lit up pink when she pressed into the toes. Her mother, Kate, slung a Little Mermaid backpack over one shoulder.
