Former St. Lawrence Central principal named to superintendent’s post in Champlain


CHAMPLAIN - The Plattsburgh Press Republican is reporting a former St. Lawrence Central principal and finalist in the last Massena superintendent search has been appointed to the top post at Northeastern Clinton Central School in Champlain.

Lisa Grenville is expected to assume the superintendent’s post by July 1. Her starting salary will be $137,000.

Ms. Grenville, who currently works as a K-12 supervisor of special education for the St. Lawrence-Lewis Board of Cooperative Education Services in Potsdam, had formerly served as elementary principal for five years and high school principal for one year at St. Lawrence Central School, as well as the director of special education for three years and director of instruction for a year.

She was hired as elementary principal in August 2005. She took over as high school principal in September 2012, replacing Christopher W. Rose who had served as both middle and high school principal the previous school year because of budget constraints.

Ms. Grenville had been a finalist last year for the superintendent’s position in the St. Lawrence Central School District, replacing the retiring Stephen M. Putman, but board of education members appointed Stephan J. Vigliotti Sr. Ms. Grenville served as both the high school principal and special education director prior to accepting the BOCES position.

She was also named one of two finalists for the superintendent’s post at Massena Central before the school board opted to launch name an interim superintendent and launch a third search.

Prior to coming to Brasher Falls, she had served as a regional professional development specialist with Clinton-Essex-Warren-Washington BOCES. She began her teaching career in 1992 as a special education teacher in a 12:1:1 program and later an 8:1:1 program with Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES. She also served seven years as a high school special education teacher for grades nine through 12 in the Malone Central School District.

Ms. Grenville earned her education administration certification from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from SUNY Plattsburgh in special education.
