Principal Abbasi leaving Schalmont in October, interim will be appointed

Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to you with bittersweet news. High School Principal Imran Abbasi has accepted the position of Director of World Languages, English as a New Language and Social Studies at the Niskayuna Central School District, effective October 7.

In the coming weeks, we will appoint an interim principal and conduct a search for a permanent replacement. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible so that our students continue to be afforded a stable learning environment. Ms. Nicole Martyn continues as HS Assistant Principal and our School Resource Officer Kanavally will be returning as well.

Mr. Abbasi has been an integral part of the district’s leadership team and his leadership of Schalmont HS will not be forgotten.

He will be sincerely missed, but we wish him well at Niskayuna.

If you have any questions or concerns about this transition, please do not hesitate to call Mrs. Martyn at (518) 355-6110, or my office at 518-355-9200.


Carol A. Pallas, Superintendent
