Webster Central School District recently announced that Jennifer Sullivan, assistant principal at Plank Road South Elementary School, accepted the position as the new principal of Plank South Elementary School.
Sullivan will officially begin July 1. She will be taking over for Scott Wilcox, who is leaving in July to join the American School in Tokyo as deputy head of school for learning.
Sullivan is committed to Plank South’s students, families, faculty and staff; and has been a member of the Plank South school community since 2001 when she began her work as a physical education teacher. She has served as a lead teacher for Plank South, 2012-2015, and in her current role as assistant principal since July 2015. Sullivan continues to distinguish herself as a collaborative, enthusiastic leader, whose positive attitude is evident in all that she has accomplished throughout her 18-year career at Plank South.
While at Plank South, Sullivan has implemented wellness initiatives for the school community, cultivated student leadership opportunities and facilitated integral professional development practices and programs for her colleagues. Her commitment to the district’s vision of compassionately connected, joyfully engaged, always learning, is integral in her daily interactions with students, families and faculty and staff.
Sullivan earned her undergraduate degree, Master of Arts and certificate of advanced studies in education administration from SUNY Brockport. She also earned New York state certifications as a school building leader and school district leader. Sullivan lives in Fairport and is the parent of two sons, Luke and Ryan.
“I am greatly anticipating this new leadership role at a school I’ve been fortunate to be part of for the past 18 years,” said Sullivan. “I will continue to foster a school climate that is conducive to a quality education for all of our students.”
Plank South families will be kept updated on the search process for a new assistant principal, which will begin immediately.
