“I am honored to join PPS as your new superintendent,” said Dr. Kelley.  “The district’s long legacy of academic excellence, deep commitment to helping all students find their own pathways to success, diverse student body, and core values of innovation in education are just a few of the reasons why this opportunity excites me. Also, the ability to move back to Central New Jersey to be near my family, friends, and colleagues feels like a dream come true. I am looking forward to meeting and partnering with the students, staff and families. Together, we will carry forward Princeton Public Schools’ vision.

 Dr. Carol Kelley
