Laurie Dias-Mitchell starts her job on July 1.
The Tiverton School Committee voted 5-0 to hire Laurie Dias-Mitchell on Monday night as the new principal for the middle school. According to the superintendent's office, she begins on July 1.
Reached Tuesday morning, Committee Chairwoman Sally Black said Mary Bolton, the current interim principal, will serve in her position for the remainder of the year.
"She's doing a very good job," Black said of Bolton.
Black added that Dias-Mitchell worked at Tiverton High School in the past.
Approval of teacher non-renewal letters
Black said the committee also voted to send non-renewal letters for nine teachers to the state. Depending on how the school budget process goes, she said the district hopes to retain those nine teachers in June.
