PROVIDENCE – Elementary school teacher Bill Black, of East Providence, has been named the new principal of West Broadway Middle School.
A participant in the Aspiring Turnaround Leadership Program, Black served as a fourth- and sixth-grade teacher at Carl Lauro Elementary School from 2006 to 2013. In the leadership program operated by the Rhode Island Department of Education and the New York City Leadership Academy, he interned as principal in both elementary and secondary schools.
Closed in 2010, the former West Broadway elementary school on Bainbridge Avenue in the city’s West End is scheduled to reopen in the fall as a middle school to accommodate an expanding middle school population. •
