New director on board at the Center School in Stow

Shelley Dulsky will be the next principal of The Center School in Stow, according to an April 6 news release from the Nashoba Regional School District.

Dulsky is the principal of Bellview Elementary School in Cherry Creek School District No. 5, Greenwood Village, Colorado, according to the release.

Previously, she was the principal of Canyon Creek Elementary School in the same district. In 2020, when schools were closed due to the pandemic, the Cherry Creek School District appointed Dulsky as the principal of a district-wide distance learning school serving more than 5,000 students from kindergarten to the 12th year.

She also collaborated with Scott McLeod, University of Colorado, Denver, on a research project titled “Resilience, Reorientation, and Reinvention: School Leadership During the Early Months of the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

At the April 6 school committee meeting, Nashoba Superintendent Kirk Downing said Dulsky had a J.D. with the distinction of specialist in education.

“We have one of the best candidates out there,” he said.

School board member Karen Devine was on the hiring committee and said she thought Dulsky was a strong candidate.

Devine said she listened to the community forum and couldn’t help but notice that when a child appeared on screen, Dulsky would “stop to say hello.”

“I thought ‘yup, that’s what we’re looking for. It’s child-centered,” Devine said.

According to Dulsky’s Linkedin profile, she is “an education leader and advocate. [who] lawyer[s] for and drive[s] incremental and meaningful changes to systems and structures because a better world cannot wait. I am a proven change agent in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion, and student mental health and wellbeing. »

Dulsky will take office on July 1.
