Cape Elizabeth names new middle school principal

From staff reports

An educator from Massachusetts has been appointed principal of Cape Elizabeth Middle School.

Michael Tracy, currently principal at Newbury Elementary School in Newbury, Mass., will start his new job July 1. He will replace Steven Connolly, who resigned in November to become superintendent of MSAD 60 in North Berwick.
Tracy's nomination was unanimously confirmed by the school board last week. A committee of middle school faculty, administrators and parents had been reviewing applications and interviewing candidates since January.

Tracy has been principal at Newbury Elementary School since July 2010, and before that served as principal and assistant principal at Ralph B. O'Maley Middle School in Gloucester, Mass.

Tracy is a 1993 Colby College graduate. He earned a master's degree from Lesley College in Cambridge, Mass., and a doctorate in educational administration from Boston College in 2005.

Assistant Principal Doug Perley has been serving as interim principal since Connolly's resignation.
