Wallingford school board appoints Christopher Dailey as Sheehan’s AD


WALLINGFORD — The Board of Education voted unanimously Monday night to appoint Christopher Dailey as Sheehan High School’s new athletic director.

Dailey, a Sheehan math teacher and tennis coach, replaces VJ Sarullo, who left to become Milford’s athletic director.

Prior to the appointment, the school board met in executive session to discuss the athletic director vacancy and candidates for a teaching position. Board of Education Chairwoman Roxane McKay, Vice Chairman Joe Marrone, and members Chet Miller, Jay Cei, Karen Hlavac, Michael Brooder and Chris Shortell voted in favor of Dailey’s appointment. Board members Kathy Castelli and Michael Votto were not in attendance.

McKay said she was pleased to fill another vacancy with a candidate from the school system.

Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Cindy Lavalette complimented the candidate pool, which consisted of school system employees.

“We would gone to the outside if we had to,” Lavalette said, “but we were very fortunate to have strong candidates from the internal pool.”

At a special school board meeting earlier this month, Steve Baker was appointed as Lyman Hall High School’s athletic director.

Baker, a teacher at Dag Hammarskjold Middle School, replaced Amy Labas, who took a similar position in Plainville.

Dailey’s appointment is one of several since the end of the last school year.

From June to August, the school board appointed Lavalette in her new position; Justin Marciano and Greg Dirkson as Sheehan’s new assistant principals; David Kimball as Lyman Hall’s new assistant principal; Kristine Friend as Cook Hill School’s principal; and Danielle Bellizzi as Pond Hill School’s principal.
