Assistant Principal of the Year


The Massachusetts School Administrators’ Association (MSAA) would like to congratulate the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District on the selection of Elise DuBois as our Elementary Assistant Principal of the Year.

A five-person committee reviewed all applications and selected two finalists, who were then interviewed by the committee. Elise emerged as the choice based on her exceptional leadership skills and her tireless work on behalf of the students, families, and staff of Palmer River Elementary School.

The committee was impressed with Elise’s work to support a school climate of positivity by implementing a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Program (PBIS), as well as her work to establish a data-driven approach to excellence through collaborative work on data analysis, planning and sharing best practice. Her enthusiasm, her innovativeness and her genuine concern for excellence were evident throughout her interview. As a former principal with 27 years of experience in the role, I was impressed with Elise’s ability to articulate a clear vision behind why she took a particular action (to build teacher capacity) or for leading a program in the school.

We would like to recognize Elise in her district at a date and location to be determined by the district. In addition, Elise will be formally recognized as part of the MSAA Summer Leadership Institute July 23-25 at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center. We hope you will be able to attend and will sent more specific details once the conference schedule has been determined. Finally, Elise represent Massachusetts as a National Outstanding Assistant Principal, sponsored by the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP).

Again, congratulations to Elise, Palmer River Elementary School and the entire Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District. If you have questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me.
