New Milford appoints second acting principal for Schaghticoke Middle School



NEW MILFORD – The school board selected a member of its own staff to serve as the interim principal at Schaghticoke Middle School at a special meeting Thursday, according to a press release.

Linda Scoralick will now serve as principal for the remainder of the school year after former principal Chris Longo resigned to take on another position in another district. This is the district’s second acting appointment since Longo announced his departure in September.

Longo had been in the district since 2016.

In his new role, Scoralick will receive a salary of $ 96,287 as of his start date of Nov. 15, according to meeting minutes.

At a previous special meeting, the board of directors unanimously approved the appointment of Robert Tremaglio as interim director effective October 7. At the time, Tremaglio was expected to take on this role until a permanent candidate was found.

Scoralick has worked for the district since 2007 and was most recently deputy principal of the high school. She began her career in New Milford as a professor of mathematics before becoming chair of the mathematics department.

Scoralick received his BA from Purchase College SUNY and his Masters in Teacher Leadership and 6th year in Educational Leadership from Quinnipiac University. She obtained her certification from Western Connecticut State University.

DiCorpo called Scoralick a “familiar face and presence” who would fill “the important post of Acting SMS Director”.

During the meeting, the board also appointed a new district technology director, Jeffrey Turner.

Turner has worked as an IT Director for Watertown Public Schools since 2015.

“We welcome Mr. Turner and Ms. Scoralick to these two important positions and look forward to having them each as part of our administrative team,” DiCorpo said in the statement.
