Sandusky High School’s new principal isn’t officially a Blue Streak yet, but district leaders did their best Monday to ensure he looked the part.
School board members presented Ted Caleris with a shirt bearing the Sandusky Schools logo just seconds after unanimously approving his new contract.
“We’re excited for him to bring his wealth of knowledge to our leadership team,” board president Faith Denslow said. “We’re ready for him to be a Blue Streak.”
Caleris, currently principal at Brooklyn Middle School near Cleveland, signed a two-year contract Monday beginning Aug. 1.
He will replace longtime principal Dan Poggiali, who announced his retirement in the fall after 17 years at the position and 36 years at Sandusky Schools.
