As the school year comes to an end, there are many personnel changes awaiting students when they return to school in the fall.

First off, there's a big change at the top as Danbury School Superintendent. Dr Sal Pascarella begins his official retirement on June 30th. Dr Sal had been an educator for 50 years, the last 15 years as the superintendent of Danbury Schools.

Dr Sal told that his new retirement schedule will allow him to spend more time with his family, and will continue to allow him to teach graduate classes at Sacred Heart University and Western Connecticut State University.

Now there are some big shoes to fill, and the Danbury Board of Education has announced that Assistant Superintendent Kevin Walston will take over for Dr. Sal on an interim basis until a permanent replacement can be found.

 While all this is happening, the Danbury Public Schools sent out a press release Tuesday announcing the addition of two new principals in the district.

Michelle Tarsi has been tapped to take over as the principal of Mill Ridge Primary School and Ellen Paolino will now take the top spot at Hayestown Elementary School.

Tarsi has held the position of Assistant Principal at Mill Ridge Primary for the last year and now takes that step up the latter to the big office. Meanwhile, Paolino has held the top spot at the Walsh School in Waterbury for the last seven years and now makes the jump to Danbury in her new Principal position.

Both principals will begin their new positions starting on July 1.
