Five-year Venice High School Assistant Principal Ronald DiPillo has been selected as the new principal of Oak Park School.
He will succeed Dan Parrett, who is retiring in January 2010.
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, DiPillo received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics and economics from Youngstown State University. He also studied educational leadership at the University of South Florida and is scheduled to receive a doctoral degree in education from Argosy University, Sarasota, in 2010.
DiPillo said he excited by the prospect of following Parrett.
“The success of Oak Park School is a district priority, and I am very proud to be selected to follow such a great leader,” he said. “I believe that the students of Oak Park deserve the same access to an enriched instructional environment as all other Sarasota students. I hope to emulate Mr. Parrett in many ways and to maintain the momentum that he has created.”
