A committee of teachers, parents, administrators and one student selected former Westhill High School Assistant Principal Chase Dunlap to serve as a permanent 10th grade assistant principal at Staples, replacing interim Assistant Principal Karyn Morgan. Dunlap accepted the offer and plans to assume his position the week of Oct. 28.

The committee appointed Dunlap from a pool of thirteen candidates.

 “[I am] an equity focused leader with a passion for improving educational opportunities and performance for all students,” Dunlap wrote on his resume when applying for the Staples position.

Prior to becoming Westhill High School’s assistant principal, Dunlap taught social studies classes at Westhill, Brien McMahon and Manchester High Schools. Dunlap holds degrees for a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership, and is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Special Education degree.

Students hope that the introduction of a new assistant principal will help the administration further inspire change in the Staples environment.

“I would like to see the administration take further actions to prevent the spread of hate and discrimination in our school community,”  Emma Nordberg ’22 said. “And hopefully the new assistant principal will bring in a new perspective to help with that.”
