Hilton Central School District will welcome Jeffrey Michael Green, of Greece, as principal of Hilton High School on Aug. 27.
He replaces Brian Bartalo, who accepted the superintendent position at Holley CSD.
Green served as principal of Odyssey Academy in Greece CSD since 2015. He previously worked as assistant principal at Athena High School and associate superintendent for the Diocese of Rochester. Green started his career teaching and serving as an instructional coach in Rochester City School District.
Green’s education includes a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Ithaca College, a master’s degree in business and marketing education from Nazareth College, a certificate of advanced study in school building and district leadership and a doctorate in teaching and curriculum from University of Rochester.
Green’s entry plan includes becoming involved in the Hilton community, developing trusting relationships focused on student success with stakeholders and groups and bringing out the best in his staff while aligning goals to the district’s strategic plan.
“I would like to thank the board of education, the search committee and [Superintendent] Dr. [Casey] Kosiorek for the opportunity to join the Hilton school community,” Green said. “I have felt incredibly welcomed in my short time getting to know the school, the district and the community during the interview process, and now I am looking forward to working collaboratively in support of our students.”
