Supt. names interim principal at Hansen School


Superintendent of Schools Jeffrey Granatino announced last week the appointment of David Brauninger as interim principal of the Hansen Elementary School. Brauninger will replace Peter Boucher, who is leaving to become the athletic director at Milford High School.

For the past three years, Brauninger has served as the student services coordinator at Canton High School, where he has supervised the implementation and development of curriculum within the Student Services Department; chaired all special education team meetings; and has been responsible for the supervision and evaluation of student services staff.

Prior to his arrival in Canton, Brauninger was a special education teacher in the Franklin Public Schools for six years. During one of those years, he also served as the coordinator/team chair of their Alternative Learning Program.

“In his time in Canton, David has shown a clear understanding for the needs of all students and has worked hard to cultivate a culture of teamwork and high expectations within his department,” Granatino said in a statement announcing Brauninger’s appointment.

“David is an organized, personable, and visionary leader who works effectively with all stakeholders,” added Granatino. “He is a patient listener and values the input of those around him. With a master’s in education from Simmons College, along with a second master’s in organizational management from Endicott College, David has also successfully completed an administrative licensure program. During this interim period, he will have the full support of the central office leadership team.”

Granatino said that while it will be “difficult to replace a leader and friend like Peter Boucher, I am confident that David Brauninger will do a tremendous job in this new role. David is excited about the opportunity to work with the talented group of students, teachers, and staff at the [Hansen School] and looks forward to supporting the initiatives that Mr. Boucher brought forward in his time at the Hansen.”
