FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Public Schools Superintendent is losing another individual from his central office.
Framingham Public Schools Assistant Director Elementary Education Brenda Maurao is leaving Framingham to become an interim principal at Mary Lee Burbank Elementary School in Belmont. She was hired in August 2018.
Belmont Public Schools said she will serve as interim principal for the rest of the 2021-2022 school year. A search will be held in 2022 for a permanent principal.
It is unknown when her last day in the Framingham public school district is.
Maurao was the Principal at the Stall Brook Elementary School in Bellingham and an Assistant Principal from 2012-2017 at the Fred W. Miller School in Holliston, before coming to Framingham. She does have ties to Belmont, where she served as a classroom teacher, along with time in Arlington & Holliston as a classroom teacher.
Maurao is the second leader in the Framingham Public Schools to jump ship for an interim post in another district this school year.
It is unusual for administrators and principals to leave mid school year, and even more unusual to leave for an interim not permanent post.
The positions of Assistant Director of Elementary Education and Assistant Director Secondary Education were created in the summer of 2018. Now both individuals hired are no longer in those positions. Kerry Wood, the first Assistant Director of secondary Education is now the Principal at Fuller Middle School in Framingham.
Earlier this year, Assistant Superintendent of Framingham Public Schools for secondary Education Anne Ludes left. She now heads the Massachusetts Science & Math Academy at WPI in Worcester.
Tremblay decided instead of replacing her, he combined the secondary education assistant superintendent position with the Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education, and now Amy Bright is now the Assistant Superintendent for preK-12.
In October, Assistant Superintendent for Diversity, Equity, and Community Development Joseph Corazzini left for a position in Worcester at Clark University. He is now the Vice President for Government and Community Affairs.
Corazzini was hired by former Superintendent Stacy Scott in 2012 as the Director of Community Resource Development. He was promoted to the newly-created Assistant Superintendent post of Diversity, Equity, & Community Development in the summer of 2018.
Last month, the first person to hold the newly-created Dean of Students position at Framingham High Omawali Stewart announced he was leaving in December to pursue his real estate career.
Tremblay, since become Superintendent of Schools in April of 2017, is approaching his 5 year mark with the public school district.
His administration had had revolving door principals at King Elementary, Stapleton Elementary, and now Harmony grove Elementary.
Former Walsh Middle School Vice Principal James Bergeron was named permanent Principal for King Elementary in July 2021.
Over at King, Bergeron began his role at King during the 2020-21 school year, when he was named interim principal for the K-5 school on Water Street.
Bergeron is the sixth principal in seven years at the George P. King School, since it re-opened as an elementary school.
