The Framingham School Committee voted unanimously on June 4 to appoint Mark Prince as assistant superintendent. The appointment is based on the Superintendent Stacy Scott's recommendation.
"As a former METCO student and Framingham North graduate, I appreciate the educational opportunities afforded to me starting in first grade through my high school graduation," Prince stated, in part, in an email. "A combination of academic, athletic, and art experiences laid the foundation for my interest in pursuing a career in education after graduating from college. Many families in the community embraced me even though my zip code was 02115. A large part of my childhood was spent in Framingham both in an out of schools. The community gave me a lot of support over a number of years and I am looking forward to giving back to the community and the schools in my new capacity as Assistant Superintendent."
Prince has most recently worked as interim superintendent of Gill-Montague Regional Schools in Montague.
He has taught in schools in West Newton and Boston, as well as Maryland. He has held administrative posts in schools in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, and New York. He holds a masters in education administration from Boston College.
In his new position in Framingham, Prince stated that he will be "managing system wide initiatives, supporting the districtís growth and development and working with building principals."
