Hebron principal to take job in Canton

December 28, 2011 Local News 1 Comment

Hebron Elementary School will soon be looking for a new principal.

Principal Kevin Hanlon will leave on Jan. 13, 2012 to take a position as principal of the Canton Intermediate School.

“It is much closer to home and, for personal and family issues, he wanted to be closer to home,” said Hebron Superintendent of Schools Eleanor Cruz. “Kevin has done a great job as a building leader, and will be missed.”

Hebron Elementary School serves grades three through six.

Kindergarten through second grades attend Gilead Hill Elementary School and seventh through 12 grades attend regional RHAM middle and high schools.

Hanlon, who lives with his family in West Hartford, arrived at Hebron Elementary Sept. 21, 2009 to fill the vacancy left by former principal, Joanne Collins, who moved out of the area with her family.

He was the unanimous selection by the Hebron Board of Education over 30 other applicants.

His annual salary was more than $112,000.

Prior to coming to Hebron elementary, Hanlon served as the assistant principal of Irving A. Robbins Middle School in Farmington and was the assistant principal of Winchester Middle School in Winchester.

The Hebron Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Jan. 5 to accept Hanlon’s resignation. “The board of education is meeting to discuss the process of replacing him,” Cruz said.

The meeting will be held in the music room of Gilead Hill Elementary at 7 p.m.

    OMG — the superintendent refers to Hanlon as a ” …. building leader…”

    This small community does NOT NEED two principals. With his resignation we now have 1 principal, 1 assistant principal and one curriculum/technology specialist. Look at the last year’s budget .. there are also several “clerical” positions in this school district (3 secretaries assigned to special education).

    Cut and slash, do NOT fill empty positions… school enrollment is declining and we are spending too much on the elementary schools in Hebron. The new administrators’ contract even supplies “cell” phones to the administrators and $80 stipend to each to pay for their services. Obviously a phone with all the bells and whistles. At a meeting this super stated her staff were like firemen and on call 24/7. If so, why aren’t these cell phone numbers listed for the public? Let’s remind them that those phones will be subject to the freedom of information act. Taxpayers are footing the bill!
