Steven LePage, assistant principal of Wolcott High School in Wolcott, Connecticut, has been named principal of Plainville High School. LePage will replace current principal Greg Ziogas, who will retire in June.

LePage began his career in education as a special education teacher working at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center, the Transitional Education Program in East Hartford, Connecticut, and Wolcott High School. He subsequently served as the Special Education Department Head and Director of Adult Education for Wolcott Public Schools. He has held the position of assistant principal at Wolcott High School since 2006.

LePage earned a bachelor of science degree from Central Connecticut State University, and a master of education degree from the University of Hartford. In addition, he holds a sixth year certificate in educational leadership from Central Connecticut State University.

LePage was named the candidate of choice at a special meeting of the Plainville Board of Education held on May 24th. A Plainville High School Principal Search Committee, comprised of Board of Education members, district administrators, staff members, and parents conducted the search. It is anticipated that LePage will begin as principal at Plainville High School on July 1, 2010.

"Mr. LePage is an exceptional candidate for the high school principal. He has extremely high standards and combines this with a great understanding of the needs of high school students. I have full confidence that he can take the high school to the next level of success," noted Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Kathleen Binkowski.

"Plainville High School has an outstanding reputation as a positive learning community, where students are supported and developed in preparation for post-secondary success. As your new principal, I promise to build upon the solid foundation which has been created by members of the board of education, administration, faculty and staff. Through open communication, teamwork and a shared vision focused on high expectations for student achievement, I believe this transition will be positive for everyone. Congratulations to Mr. Ziogas on his upcoming retirement. He has obviously worked extremely hard in multiple roles for the benefit of students at Plainville High School," said LePage.
