(Page 2 of 2)

Oceanside High School Principal Mark Secaur, pictured here at last month’s graduation exercises, will be leaving Aug. 1 to become an assistant superintendent in Hewlett-Woodmere.

Previously, Secaur was associate principal of the high school for three years, assistant principal of Nassau BOCES and a special education teacher in New York City.

He is the president-elect of the Long Island Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, has made presentations on improving disabled students’ graduation rates at both the Long Island and New York State Council for Exceptional Children conferences, and has been an adjunct professor at CUNY Brooklyn in the special education master’s program.

Secaur holds an Advanced Certificate in school administration and supervision and a master’s in education from Brooklyn College, where he has also received the Barbara Reing Memorial Award in recognition of his scholarship and service to students with disabilities. He earned his bachelor’s degree in history from the State University of New York at Geneseo.

Donna Krauss, a spokeswoman for the Oceanside schools, said that Harrington has recommended to the Board of Education that Geraldine DeCarlo, who has been associate principal of OHS for the past 10 years, be appointed principal. “DeCarlo offers stability, continuity and deep knowledge of OHS, its students and staff,” Krauss said.

She added that the superintendent and the Board of Education will seek to find a replacement for DeCarlo as well as Associate Principal Fred Koller, who recently announced his retirement.
