Cos Cob School principal moves on to Ridgefield

Cos Cob school principal Kimberly Beck recently announced that she has accepted a position as the assistant superintendent for the Ridgefield Public Schools, effective in January 2013.

In a press release announcing her departure, Ms. Beck said, “For almost six years, I have had the privilege of being the proud principal of Cos Cob School. There is nothing I am more humbled by than the unrelenting support of the entire learning community. I have been honored to work alongside the students, faculty and parents. Additionally, I have learned a tremendous amount from my principal colleagues and through my collaboration with central office administration. I am very excited to start another chapter in my professional career. However, I will greatly miss the people that I have had the good fortune of working with across the district.”

As Cos Cob School principal since 2007, Ms. Beck has been, according to the district, “a respected and valued leader for the school, as well as among her peers.”. Ms. Beck is responsible for creating a collaborative learning community and a service program around the “Together we fly” maxim at Cos Cob School. She has been an instrumental contributor to important district initiatives, including the Technology Committee, the Administrator Evaluation Committee, Capstone project development, the Teacher Evaluation and Professional Learning (TEPL) plan and the implementation of the data team structure for improvement planning at the school and classroom level.

Superintendent of Schools William McKersie said, “Kim Beck has given her head, heart, and hand to the Greenwich Public Schools for 11 years. From the first day we met, she has stood out for her educational expertise and passion for student learning. We will miss her greatly and Cos Cob will miss her greatly. We are confident that Mrs. Beck will bring her excellence and passion to benefit all students in Ridgefield.”

In Ms. Beck’s absence, Nancy Carbone, retired Greenwich Public Schools principal and currently acting as interim assistant principal at Cos Cob School, will take on the interim principal position through Feb. 8, 2013. John Grasso, retired Riverside School principal, will assume the role of interim principal for the school effective February 8 through the end of the school year. The search for a permanent principal for Cos Cob School will begin after the start of the New Year.
