New Principal Selection
A Message from Margaret Pupillo, Area Superintendent, Northwest Learning Community
March 23, 2017
Dear Roswell High School Families and Staff,
As you are aware, Mr. Huff will be officially retiring from Fulton County Schools at the end of the school year. Mr. Huff has served the students, staff and parents in Fulton County for the past 17 years. We are so appreciative for his leadership and dedication to our students and families in the Roswell community.
We will now begin working to fill this vacancy with the best candidate possible. The first step in this process is to build a unique profile for Roswell High School. The purpose of the school profile is to outline the unique characteristics of the school and to highlight the most important leadership skills that your future principal will need to be successful. We will use this valuable information to select the most qualified candidates to proceed to a school level interview. Candidates will be interviewed on the competencies identified as the most critical to meet the unique needs of your school.
In order to build a school profile and obtain stakeholder input, a survey has been created. The survey is standard across the district and was developed by the Fulton County Talent Division to determine the critical competencies needed of the school leader specific to each school. The link for the survey is below and it will also be posted on your school's website. The survey will be open until midnight on Friday, April 14th, 2017. Your input is very important, so we appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.
I know that you will join me in wishing Mr. Huff all the best on his new journey. We are grateful to him for his service to Roswell High School, as well as Fulton County Schools.
Margaret Pupillo, Ed.S.

RHS JROTC Awards
To share some year-end results as we just got back from our District Awards ceremony.
In addition to cadet of the year and runner up this year the Hornet Battalion got word today they scored above a 96 on our inspection this year earning the Honor Unit with Distinction. This is the big inspection we get once every three to four years. Furthermore this is the new inspection system in which the mark for HUD was raised from scoring a 90 to scoring a 96. Across the board, everyone was advised not to expect to achieve HUD with the new system. The kids hit it out of the park.
Also, to add on—the Hornet Battalion was awarded the academic streamer for the top Battalion in the District with JROTC academics. …still not done… next step the leadership team competing at nationals in Washington DC the end of June.
