ORIGINAL STORY (Posted at 2 p.m.)
It appears that Principal may be sooner rather than later.
The will hold its next regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night.
And according to the agenda's roll call of current administrators — although the district's new and new Principal have already been added to the list — no one is specifically named as the principal of the high school.
The district posted its employment advertisement for a high school principal on Thursday. The start date is listed as "immediately."
Anderson's page on the professional networking site LinkedIn was recently revised to list him as the principal of Central High School in Bridgeport. That school's web page, however, still has Aresta Johnson named as its head.
Naming an Interim Principal?
Although the agenda for the school board's meeting Tuesday does include among its informational items Anderson's resignation, it does not include any action or public discussion items related to naming an interim or new principal for the high school.
The principal notified the school system and high school staff members of his resignation last week.
Anderson and Superintendent of Schools Anthony Serio did not return East Haven Patch's calls requesting comment on the resignation, and for information about naming an interim head for the high school as the process of finding a new principal gets under way.
