Jamie Chisum, who took over as principal of Wellesley Middle School last year, has informed parents and guardians that he is a finalist for Headmaster/Principal at Brookline High School. He wrote in part: “I did not anticipate applying for such a position when I began the school year. I am flattered to have been recruited to apply for this position and after much thought decided to take advantage of the unexpected opportunity to see where it may lead. The next step in Brookline’s process is to have me go visit their school. I will certainly keep you informed as to how things go from here.”
Chisum took the helm at Wellesley Middle School last year after Josh Frank slipped out of town at the end of the 2010-2011 school year. Chisum is still listed as “interim principal” on the Wellesley Middle School website and Wellesley High Principal Andrew Keough recently made reference to his former assistant principal in a way that got us thinking Chisum might even be headed back there at some point.
