NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Pupils at Brayton Elementary School will see a new face at the helm when they head back to school in two weeks.

But not too new.

The new Brayton principal is John R. Franzoni, who spent last couple years as assistant principal and dean of students at Greylock and Sullivan elementary school. Franzoni has also been the Drury High School girls' basketball coach since 2002.

"Mr. Franzoni is a dedicated professional with a proven track record as an administrator who, I believe, will provide consistent and supportive leadership for our Brayton community," said Superintendent of Schools James Montepare in making the announcement on Wednesday.

Franzoni, who has 23 years experience in education, replaces Principal Sarah Madden, who left after three years to become principal of R.K. Finn Ryan Road School in Northampton.

He is a 1982 honors graduate of Drury High School and earned his bachelor of science in business administration from Bryant University in 1986 and his master of education in curriculum and teaching from Fitchburg State University in 2013, graduating with honors from both universities.

He is certified as a principal and assistant principal for Grades prekindergarten through 12 and is also certified for teaching mathematics for Grades 5 through 8. Franzoni is currently completing his superintendent certification.

"For those of you who are not familiar with Mr. Franzoni, I am providing you with a listing of his experience and what he will bring to the table," wrote Montepare.
