The Chappaqua Board of Education announced that Horace Greeley High School Principal Robert Rhodes will resign from his job by the end of this month.

School Board members accepted Rhodes' resignation during a special meeting on Friday, June 22 at the district’s Education Center.

Rhodes, who has served in his position for six years, has been on paid leave since June 5.

No details about Rhodes’ resignation were released by school district officials.

Assistant Principal Laura Dubak, who has been serving as the Horace Greeley interim principal, will remain in that role through next week.

Meanwhile, Dubak wrote in an email to Chappaqua parents that she is leaving the school district and is expected to become assistant principal at Byram Hills High School during the upcoming school year.

Superintendent of Schools Christine Ackerman said that Seven Bridges Middle School Principal Andrew Corsilia will be the next principal at the high school, effective Aug. 1.

“Mr. Corsilia’s strong background as a secondary leader and his understanding of our high school will provide the necessary stability for our District as the high school rebuilds its administrative team,” Ackerman said. “I am fully confident that Andrew Corsilia, Lauralyn Stewart, Jason Semo and our department leaders will effectively guide our high school through this transitional time.”

Ackerman said the district will immediately look for an interim principal at Seven Bridges and will search for a permanent replacement.

Rhodes’ resignation from Greeley is the latest in a series of administrative CCSD departures in recent years.

Former Chappaqua Schools Superintendent Lyn McKay resigned in October 2016 after the guilty plea of former drama teacher Christopher Schraufnagel -- who was charged in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of Horace Greeley students between 2011 and 2015.

The prestigious school district also lost Eric Byrne, another central administrator.
