PORTLAND — Stephen Rogers was named principal of Lyman Moore Middle School, returning to a position he previously held for nearly a decade.
Rogers, who has been interim principal since July, was the Portland High School assistant principal from 2006 to 2011. Before that he was principal at Lyman Moore for nine years.
Rogers’ appointment was annouced by Superintendent James C. Morse Sr. at the April 3 School Board meeting.
Rogers said he is excited to continue “the great work” the school is doing.
“Our goal will continue to be making our learning meaningful and relevant by extending it beyond the four walls of the classroom,” he said in a prepared statement. “Our school will work as a team to ensure that all of our student exit with the knowledge, skills and habits to be successful in high school and beyond.”
Rogers, who has coached several sports and the Portland High School math team, holds a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College and a master’s in educational administration from the University of Southern Maine.
