Falmouth High School Principal Mary Gans has submitted her resignation, effective January 3, 2022.
“I am certainly not immune to putting my own life under the microscope and examining what I want my path to be as I look ahead. So it is with great emotion that while I will always be an extremely proud Clipper, I have submitted my resignation as principal of Falmouth High School,” Ms. Gans wrote in a statement released to Blackboard on Tuesday, October 12.
During Tuesday’s school committee meeting, Superintendent Lori S. Duerr said Assistant Principal Thomas P. McManamon will serve as interim principal until a new candidate is hired.
“Her [Ms. Gans’] incredible work ethic and leadership qualities have led Falmouth High School to gain the NEAS accreditation. She has inspired both students and staff during her tenure,” Dr. Duerr said.
Additional administrative staff will be hired to help aid the transition. New hires will be announced at a later date as plans are finalized, Dr. Duerr said.
“Thank you, both students and families, for all of your support and good will during my time as your principal. It has been an honor and a privilege, and I will indeed miss you all,” Ms. Gans wrote in her statement.
