April 20, 2017

Flushing, NY The New York City Department of Education announced today at the conclusion of the recent C30 process that Brian Condon has been chosen as the new principal for Townsend Harris High School in Queens, replacing Interim Acting Principal Rosemarie Jahoda after months of tension between the school community and the DOE. Assemblywoman Nily Rozic issued the following statement in regards to the decision:

"With the end of the C30 process and a new principal placement at Townsend Harris High School today, I would like to thank Mayor de Blasio and the Department of Education for heeding the call of our community and choosing a candidate that will move this school forward. Over the last couple of months, the community came together to have their voices heard and showed that through continued activism, positive change can happen. I look forward to working with the new principal in order to ensure that Townsend Harris is the best it can be for our students and to continuing to work with the Administration to create a more transparent C30 process.

Mr. Condon will become the permanent principal beginning May 1st, 2017.
