DERBY >> A familiar face at Derby High School was named the school’s assistant principal this week.

The Board of Education voted at a meeting Tuesday to appoint Rachael Artaiz to the position.
Artaiz had been filling in as assistant principal on an interim basis since last December after former Principal Greg Gaillard abruptly resigned. Current DHS Principal Martin Pascale, the school’s former assistant principal for the past three years, stepped in following Gaillard’s departure, and had since been promoted in February to school principal. Artaiz previously served as the school district’s secondary special education coordinator for grades 6-12, as well as acting athletic director.

According to Superintendent of Schools Matthew Conway, Artaiz was selected from a field of more than 80 candidates who applied for the assistant principal job.
