Sara Dingledy, the principal of Westchester Square Academy in New York city, was named the new principal of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School on Friday.

Vineyard school administrators are close to deciding who will be the next regional high school principal. The decision comes amid public criticism over recent hasty departures of two principals.


Principal Jack Rizzo resigned effective Dec. 23, after six months on the job. Megan Farrell, administrator for curriculum and support, will step in as the interim school principal.

Margaret (Peg) Regan, the former longtime principal at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School, takes over as interim principal on Monday, following news last week that Gilbert Traverso had resigned the top post.

After barely a year on the job, high school principal Gil Traverso has resigned, Vineyard schools superintendent Matthew D’Andrea confirmed Friday. Mr. Traverso has taken a new position in New Haven, Conn.


The head of a vocational school in Springfield has been hired as the new principal for the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. Gilbert Traverso was chosen for his leadership and people skills, superintendent James H. Weiss said.
