Greenwich Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones announced the appointment of Mrs. Jessica McEvily as assistant principal at North Street School, effective immediately. Mrs. McEvily replaces Ms. Kathleen Smith-Ramirez who was appointed assistant principal at North Mianus School last month. A member of the faculty in the Greenwich Public School district since 2007, Mrs. McEvily, who most recently held the role of assistant principal at Parkway School from January through March 2021, will support the entire North Street community, assisting in the development and achievement of school goals and objectives, while advocating on behalf of all students.
"Ms. McEvily has shown tremendous dedication to students in our district for many years and has been such a great asset to our community," Dr. Jones said. "Her devotion and professional experience makes her a perfect fit for North Street School."
As the assistant principal at Parkway, Mrs. McEvily's responsibilities included supervising and assisting special education staff members, facilitating all Planning and Placement Team (PPT) meetings, creating and modifying staff and student schedules, and overseeing parent communication for students with comprehensive needs. From 2007 until 2019, she was a GPS school psychologist developing and implementing plans, counseling sessions, and lessons. In 2018, Mrs. McEvily became a school psychology program associate and in 2019 was named a behavior support team psychologist.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jessica McEvily to North Street School as our new Assistant Principal," Principal Jill Flood said. "I am confident her knowledge and expertise gained through years of dedicated service to the students and families of GPS will serve her well as an outstanding administrator. Her enthusiasm and passion for working with students, families, and staff is remarkable, and I am very much looking forward to our new partnership as the leadership team of our great school."
"I am truly honored to join the North Street School community which is known for its dedication and commitment to one another - staff, students and families alike," Mrs. McEvily said. "I look forward to joining such a strong and dynamic team to serve the needs of North Street for years to come. Let's go Dragons!"Mrs. McEvily holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish from Fairfield University, a Master of Science in therapeutic interventions and a professional diploma from Fordham University, and a Connecticut 092 Administration Certificate from Sacred Heart University.
