She will be filling in as interim principal at NSS, while Principal Jill Flood is on maternity leave for the remainder of this school year, and will then assume her new position at Parkway.

Dr. Corda said, “Grandville brings extensive teaching and administrative experience in Greenwich to the role of Parkway Principal. She impressed us with her thoughtful insights into tailoring instructional strategies to further personalize learning based on data analysis to gain understanding of the individual performance and needs of students. I have no doubt she will be a great match for Parkway.”

Grandville said “It is an honor and a privilege to be appointed principal of Parkway School and I look forward to getting to know all of the students, staff and families who call Parkway home.

Grandville was appointed as Parkway School Principal from among many highly qualified candidates after a comprehensive process, which included stakeholder involvement to develop the qualities desired in a new principal, widespread recruitment efforts, an intensive screening process to match the stakeholder profile, and multiple interviews. The initial interview committee included District administrators, Parkway School staff and parent representatives, and leadership representatives from the Greenwich teacher and administrator bargaining units and PTA Council.
