Greenwich Schools Appoint New Assistant Principal at Parkway; educator leaving post at Stamford

GREENWICH — The new vice-principal appointed at Parkway School is an educator who worked as head teacher for student support at Stamford Public Schools.

Matthew Cerruto’s appointment as Parkway is effective immediately, Greenwich Superintendent Toni Jones announced Monday.

Cerruto replaces Cindy Boucard, who left Greenwich Public Schools at the end of last school year for an administrative role in a district closer to her new home, Jones said.

At Parkway, Cerruto will help Principal Mary Grandville organize and foster a positive and safe environment that is conducive to best meeting the needs of all students, staff and parents, Jones said. This includes responsibilities such as leading a variety of staff and programs; create effective communications between parents, teachers and children; support and evaluate staff; and fostering teamwork among teachers and between staff and parents.

“I am deeply honored to join the faculty at Parkway School,” Cerruto said. “As a new administrator, I welcome the opportunity to work with students, families and staff as we grow as a learning community.”

He has been an educator at Stamford Public Schools since 2005, most recently as the Student Support Education Lead at Julia A. Stark Elementary School.

His responsibilities included administrative support to the school community; protocol compliance; behavioral support; and working as a member of a crisis team and coordinator of after-school programs. In addition to being a physical education and health teacher at Stark, Rogers International School and Springdale Elementary School in Stamford, he also held a special assignment as an administrative intern at Stark for six years, where his duties and responsibilities were comparable to those of an assistant director. .

“We are thrilled to welcome Matthew Cerruto as the new Vice Principal of Parkway School,” Grandville said. “Mr. Cerruto established himself as a proven leader who focused on building positive and supportive relationships with students, faculty and parents to support the growth of his students. Leadership and experience Mr. Cerruto’s expertise in data-driven decision making, student intervention planning, and restorative behavioral practices are very impressive.This expertise, coupled with his warm and enthusiastic personality, make him the ideal choice to help to lead our school.

“Greenwich Public Schools continues to be a preferred destination for educators in our area,” Jones said. “We are very pleased to add Mr. Cerruto to Principal Grandville’s administrative team, providing exceptional leadership to our students and staff at Parkway School.

A number of jobs have been filled in recent weeks in the GPS, including a new assistant principal at Central Middle School; a new chief operating officer within the administrative team; acting principals at Cos Cob School and Hamilton Avenue School; and a new administrator to oversee the teaching of world languages.
