Press Release BMS is Getting a New Principal!
To start on July 1, 2015

The search for a new Principal at Dr. Helen Baldwin Middle School began in February 2015. The Principal Advisory Selection Committee consisted of two teachers, two Board of Education members, two Administrators, and two Parents. With over 30 applicants, the Principal Advisory Search committee whittled the pool down to seven interviewees. Then second round, we re-interviewed four of the applicants. Ryan Earley rose to the top of the candidate pile after the second round of interviews. We then chose two finalists and four team members participated in a site visit up in New Hampshire. The selection process was rigorous and the committee selected Ryan on a unanimous vote. His background and experience will fit nicely with BMS.

Ryan Earley has been in education for the last 14 years and started as a HS Social Studies Teacher, and was continually promoted, gaining experience as both AP and Principal of grades 6-12. He has spent the last two years as Director of Curriculum and Instruction in Central Office and the Jaffrey – Rindge Cooperative school district in Jaffrey, New Hampshire. He is looking forward to getting back to the building level and moving closer to family in Providence Rhode Island. Coincidentally, the Superintendent is originally from New Hampshire, it is quite by chance that Ryan is also from New Hampshire. She had never met Ryan before the interview process began. Of course, she is elated with this new hire. By unanimous vote, the Principal Advisory Selection Committee recommended Ryan Earley to the Superintendent and the Superintendent, in turn recommended Ryan Earley to Board of Education meeting on April 21 where he was unanimously approved. Ryan will begin his stay on July 1, 2015. Please give him a warm welcome. We are very excited to welcome Ryan Earley to Canterbury Public Schools. We will be scheduling a "meet and greet" sometime before June 17, 2015.
