Interim Superintendent Dr. Joseph Connelly and Incoming Superintendent Andrew Bott announced at a meeting on the morning of Thursday, June 9 that Dean Anthony Meyer will serve as Interim Headmaster during the 2016-17 school year. Meyer will not be a candidate during the search for a permanent Headmaster that will also occur next year.

The meeting held in the MLK room was attended by approximately 100 teachers and staff, who rose in a round of applause when Connelly announced Meyer as the choice to lead the high school next year. Meyer will take over the position on July 1.

After being introduced by Connelly, Meyer spoke about his priorities for the upcoming school year. Meyer said he wants to help steady the ship and ensure that the high school picks the “best longterm leader” during its Headmaster search next year. Meyer received applause when he said he wants to recreate a “fun, trusting, supportive faculty and school culture” at the high school.

Among Meyer’s other priorities are hiring a new Dean of Students to fill his role and a new Director of Special Education. Meyer also said he wants to make the upcoming high school renovation a priority.

Meyer was chosen as Interim Headmaster after Headmaster Deborah Holman announced her resignation earlier this week.

    Congratulation Mr. Meyers!! You deserve to be the new headmaster at BHS!!! You are an amazing dean, and I’m happy to hear the good news for next year’s Headmaster for the 2016-2017 school year.

    For a position that is so important – to the school and the larger community – have you provided some background information on Mr Meyer? If not – or I didn’t find it – will you?

    Both my daughters – 2001 / 2004 – feel themselves very well served by the school, teachers and staff. Not incidentally, and as index of their good feeling about their secondary education, both have moved back into the area.

    Expect continuing support from the community for a very successful new year. (And that includes the Sagamore!)
