December 12, 2012

Hiring a new human resources director and a new principal for Marshall Street School were among the personnel moves the Washington County Board of Education unanimously approved at its Tuesday meeting.

Laura L. Francisco will be the new human resources director.

Francisco’s latest job has been with The Singer Group, according to school system spokesman Richard Wright. Her annual salary will be $93,776, Wright said.

The Singer Group is a human resources and organizational development consulting firm based in Baltimore, according to its website.

Amy C. Norris will be the next principal for Marshall Street School and supervisor/principal of the Job Development Program based at the school in Hagerstown’s West End, Wright said. Both programs serve students with developmental, intellectual or learning disabilities, autism or orthopedic impairment.

Gael Butcher, the school’s current principal, is retiring in February.

Norris’ latest job has been special education case manager at Lincolnshire Elementary School, according to the school system’s website.


Norris was principal at Pangborn Elementary School last school year, said Steve Wernick, elementary schools director. She also has served as principal at Hickory and Clear Spring elementary schools, he said.

Both women will start their new jobs on Jan. 14.
