Skaneateles Middle School Principal Selected to Lead High School

Many Skaneateles Central School District families have known Michael Caraccio as the Middle School Principal, a position he has held for the past five-and-a-half years, but he will be in a new role moving forward. On Tuesday, July 5, the Board of Education appointed Caraccio as the High School Principal.
“We are so pleased to welcome Mike Caraccio to Skaneateles High School,” said Eric Knuth, Superintendent of Schools. “Mike is a proven leader who recognizes the value of building strong relationships and connections with students and families.  This is an especially unique opportunity as so many of those relationships and connections have been formed during his time leading Skaneateles Middle School.  His dedication to student growth and learning is remarkable and makes him the ideal person to lead Skaneateles High School into the future.”
Caraccio said that the great students, supportive teachers, staff, and wonderful community drove him to pursue the new position.
“When this opportunity presented itself, I felt it would be difficult to leave the Middle School, but at the same time, with all of the relationships and connections I have established, I knew there would be something to look forward to at the High School,” said Caraccio.
From freshman orientation to Commencement, Caraccio looks forward to being involved with the High School teachers, staff and students. Whether they’re in the classroom, playing a sport, performing in a musical, or participating in a club, he’ll be there for them.
“I’ll work hard to support our teachers and students and do whatever I can to make their experiences positive,” said Caraccio. “I’ll strive to help them build confidence in themselves, be part of this community, and feel proud to be Lakers.”
