WILMINGTON — At a School Committee meeting on Feb. 12, Superin­tendent of Schools Dr. Glenn Brand announced that the interim assistant principals at the Shaw­sheen and Woburn Street Schools, Kevin Welch and Shelia Burke, respectively, will officially have their titles made permanent.

According to Brand, Welch and Burke both began the year in the in­terim roles due to the staf­fing needs of the district at that time. Throughout the course of the school year, Brand stated that he has been discussing the roles with Shawsheen Prin­cipal Lisa King and Woburn Street Principal Suzanne Sullivan.

“We’ve had ongoing conversations around how Mr. Welch and Ms. Burke have been doing,” said Brand. “It has been from day

one extremely positive, ex­treme­ly supportive, and a collective belief that they are the right person for each of those jobs.”

Committee member Jes­se Fennelly noted that his children attend the Wo­burn Street School, and stated he had heard positive feedback regarding Burke’s work as interim assistant principal.

“I just want to say congratulations, we’re glad to have her,” Fennelly said.
