Marlborough – Marlborough Public Schools announced that veteran school administrator Charles D. Caliri has been named the next principal of Marlborough High School (MHS).

Caliri was one of three final candidates from a pool of more than 40 applicants screened for the position, which is currently held by Interim Principal Wendy Jack. He has accepted the position pending satisfactory contract negotiations. Caliri is currently the principal of Chelmsford High School

Marlborough Superintendent Richard Langlois named Caliri to the position following an extensive process that involved preliminary interviews by a principal search committee, a site visit to MHS, interviews with several staff and student focus groups, an interview with members of the district leadership team, an informal meeting with the entire MHS faculty, and a forum for parents and community members.

“As the process evolved, it became clear that Mr. Caliri was the right person for the position,” said Langlois. “He will bring a wealth of experience to the district. His background as a building leader as well as his extensive experience in curriculum will help move Marlborough High School forward, establishing it as the school of choice for the community. His student-centered approach to leadership, his background as a director of math, science and technology, and his classroom experience will make him invaluable to the district and to the community. We are very much looking forward to his becoming a member of our administrative team.”

Langlois added that the feedback from the interviews, site visit and focus groups strongly supported his decision.

Caliri will begin at MHS July 1, although he will meet periodically with Langlois and Jack prior to that to acclimate himself more to the school and the district.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be named the next principal at Marlborough High School,” Caliri said. “I was so impressed with the commitment of the staff, students, administrators and families whom I’ve met, and I’m excited to join the Marlborough High School community. Although I won’t officially start until July, I look forward to working closely with interim principal Wendy Jack and Superintendent Langlois until then.”
