LACONIA — David Bartlett has been named assistant principal at Laconia High School.

Bartlett has worked in the Gilford School District since 2009 and had been previously employed with the Laconia School District as an alternative education teacher and special education teacher.

"David Bartlett's leadership style is anchored in specific core values, setting high standards through role modeling and participation," said Terri L. Forsten, superintendent of school, in making the announcement on Tuesday. "He believes the most effective schools occur when all stakeholders in the community share a common vision that maintains high standards for all students. He is self-motivated, goal oriented and deeply committed to reaching students, supporting teachers and connecting with parents and the community."

''We believe he will bring valuable skills to the position, including the abilities to think outside the box, focus on success for all learners, and promote a professional learning community approach to improving student learning,'' added Forsten.
Bartlett is married to Shannon Bartlett and has two sons, Tucker and Ryan, and a daughter, Haley.
