FRAMINGHAM – For the second year in a row, King Elementary School will be looking for a new principal.
Last June, Superintendent Bob Tremblay named former Wilson Elementary Vice Principal Jonathan Maynard as King Elementary School’s third ever principal.
Maynard has submitted his resignation, but no press release has been issued on the opening yet.
Maynard replaced Kim Taylor, who had been the elementary school’s second-ever principal.
In an email to parents today, Maynard wrote “I am writing to let you know that I have decided to resign as principal of the King School effective at the end of this school year. This is not an easy decision, but after careful consideration and reflection, I have decided to pursue graduate studies at Boston University.”
“Over the coming weeks, I will be working closely with the district leadership to ensure as smooth as transition as possible to support the King community in its next steps,” wrote Maynard to parents. “I want to thank you for the opportunity to lead King over the past year. It has been an honor and pleasure to get to get to know you and the students of King. I wish you and the King community the very best in the years to come.”
Maynard was a Principal at Winthrop Elementary School in Melrose, Massachusetts.
Having begun his educational career as a teacher in the Horace Mann Middle School in Franklin, he also taught in the American School of Campinas (Lower School) in Brazil before working in Framingham from 2009 – 2013.
Maynard graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Arts and earned a Master of Arts in History as well as a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Northeastern University. He also has a Master of Education in Education Administration from Harvard University.
