Paul Gasparini Named New Principal; Two Staff Members Assume New Positions

Paul Gasparini who has spent the past 21 years as Principal at Jamesville-Dewitt, has been selected as the school’s new Principal. Gasparini succeeds Debra Brillante who retired in June.

Gasparini served in leadership roles at the local, state, and national levels and received several recognitions for his work as a school administrator, including being named New York State High School Principal of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York State in 2012. Gasparini serves on the National Assessment Governing Board in Washington, DC, and is the Principal Representative on the Section III Athletic Executive Committee.

“We have secured a proven leader who is excited for the opportunity to join a Lasallian Catholic educational institution,” President Matt Keough said. “Mr. Gasparini’s experience, skill set, and accolades make him a premiere candidate for any leadership position throughout the state.”

Said Gasparini: “I am excited about joining the CBA community because of its dedication to the Lasallian idea that intellectual pursuits strengthen faith and build our capacity to enrich our community and our world.” 

Gasparini will officially begin his new role at CBA on Aug. 1.

Additionally CBA promoted two staff members and filled two positions.
