Assistant Superintendent appointed Interim AHS Principal

Assistant Superintendent Michele Downing has been appointed Interim Principal of the Amsterdam High School, following a recommendation from Superintendent Vicky Ramos and approval by the district’s Board of Education.

Downing’s primary focus will be building the school’s master schedule during the upcoming months, and she and Ramos will share current assistant superintendent duties.

“I have total confidence in Michele’s ability to lead the high school during this transitional period and I have no doubt that we will all support each other,” Ramos said.

Current AHS Principal Pat Corrigan submitted his letter of resignation last month. His last day in the district is Dec. 31.
