Springs School, which has been without an assistant principal since last May, announced at a school board meeting on Monday night that it had hired Cleopatra Panagiosoulis, who will assume the post soon.
Ms. Panagiosoulis last worked as an assistant administrator for data and instruction at the Evergreen Charter School in Hempstead.
On Monday night, board members voted to allow the district to prepare her contract. The resolution did not appear on the evening’s agenda.
Though she is a new face in the district, some in the administration are hopeful that her leadership will bring both rigor and stability to a school that has recently struggled with both.
