Superintendent Doyle resigns

At the November 18 Carlisle School Committee meeting Superintendent Marie Doyle announced her resignation, effective June 30. Doyle said in her letter, “I have always encouraged staff to continue to learn and grow; it is now time to take my own advice. After having served six years as superintendent in Carlisle, it is time to pursue other opportunities that will challenge me to stretch my mind and spirit in new ways.” Many audience members later expressed regret that Doyle was leaving the school. School Committee members thanked her for her years of service, praising her dedication and work on the school building project.

Doyle came to Carlisle School in 2004 after serving as principal of Newton’s Bigelow Middle School for nine years. Prior to that she worked as a curriculum specialist in Foxborough, and taught grades five through eight in Belmont and Lowell.

Doyle’s three-year contract was up for renewal in December. After her resignation, the school committee approved a new administrative format which will combine the position of superintendent and principal. ∆
