The principal of Penfield High School has been named acting superintendent of the district.
Dr. Thomas Putnam will begin his duties immediately. The Penfield Board of Education announced the decision Tuesday night.
Putnam will for now replace Dr. Stephen Grimm, who is leaving to serve as superintendent of the Clinton Central School District.
Putnam has served as principal for the past four years, and before that was assistant principal. He was also an assistant principal at Greece Olympia High School.
Together, the board and Putnam will work together to name an acting principal for Penfield High School as soon as possible.
