The Rye Neck Schools Board of Education has named Dr. Scott Mosenthal to serve as interim principal at the high school. He was officially appointed during the Board’s meeting on Dec. 7.
Dr. Mosenthal will replace Dr. Barbara Ferraro, the current high school principal and assistant superintendent for curriculum, who will transition to the Superintendent of Schools position following Superintendent Dr. Peter Mustich’s retirement at the end of the calendar year.  

"I am pleased to have Dr. Mosenthal join us as the interim high school principal,” Dr. Ferraro said. “He brings a wealth of experience to the position. His strong curriculum background, passion for teaching and learning and commitment to working with high school students make him the perfect candidate."

Dr. Mosenthal formerly served in the Irvington Union Free School District as principal for 15 years and an English teacher at Irvington Middle School and Irvington High School for 23 years. During his time at Irvington, he was the English department chairperson whose responsibilities included classroom observation and teacher evaluation, curriculum development, staff development, student discipline and building management. He was also a coach of the varsity indoor track team and junior varsity basketball and football teams.

He will step into the interim position on Jan. 3, 2017.
