By Katheleen Conti , Globe Staff

As the school year gets underway this week, students will see some new faces in appointed roles. School officials recently announced that Susan Shea Connor has been appointed assistant principal of Central Middle School, replacing Rick DeCristofaro Jr., who was named the school’s new principal in June. For the past two years, Connor has been a teacher leader at Holland Elementary in Boston. Stacey Bucci, who served as assistant principal for the past nine years at Point Webster Middle, will now be assistant principal at Broad Meadows Middle School. The assistant principal vacancy at Point Webster will be filled by Aliza Schneller, who had chaired North Quincy High’s foreign language department since 2008. She taught French there from 2003 to 2008.

Moves by city agencies should save cash

By Katheleen Conti , Globe Staff

A shuffle involving various city departments moving to new locations will save the city close to half a million dollars in leasing costs. A week and a half ago the School Department administrative offices moved to the city-owned Coddington Hall, 34 Coddington St., from the NAGE building, which the city had been leasing for $300,000 a year. The School Department administration had been in the NAGE building for the past seven years, after being displaced from the old Quincy High School during construction of the new high school building, said Laura Owens, assistant to the superintendent for communications and operations. The Planning and Community Development and Information Technology departments also moved to Coddington Hall from City Hall, making room for the office of the city clerk to move back into City Hall from the Munroe Building, which the city leased for $180,000 a year. Public Buildings Department director Gary J. Cunniff said the intent of the moves was to free the city from its annual leases.
