Interim school chief resigns

August 15, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Citing personal reasons, Interim Schools Supt. James A. DiPrete tendered his resignation Thursday, school officials and members of the Budget Commission said.

DiPrete, 77, a longtime educator and retired chairman of the former state Board of Regents, had been hired on June 19 to work for up to 70 days for $750 a day.

Even though he didn’t give specifics for leaving early, School Committee Chairman George Lacouture said DiPrete already accomplished most of the things he was hired to do: prepare the district for the launch of full-day kindergarten, overhaul the administrative structure of Woonsocket High School, and lay the groundwork for finding a permanent superintendent.
