Badalament named next principal of CCHS

Brenda Finn, Superintendent of the Concord-Carlisle Regional School District, announced in a letter to the high school community on April 3 that Peter Badalament will become principal of the Concord-Carlisle Regional High School (CCHS), effective July 1. Badalament succeeds Art Dulong, who is retiring as principal on June 30.

Badalament is no stranger to CCHS, having worked at the school between 1997 and 2001, serving in the positions of dean of students and assistant principal.

Finn quotes him as saying, "I am honored to have been chosen to lead such a vibrant learning community. CCHS is an outstanding school filled with terrific people. The challenge as we move forward is to build on the great work that has already been done."

Badalament comes to CCHS most recently from a job as principal of Bellingham High School, a position he has held since 2004. For three years prior to that he was principal at the Hanover High School. Before working in school administration, Badalament taught social studies at the JP Stevens High School in New Jersey, and English at the Lab School of Washington, D.C.

He holds an M.A. in Education and Administration from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a B.A. in English from Wesleyan University.
