Dr. Mark Gonyea named principal of Plainview Elementary School
Dr. Mark Gonyea is elated about the chance to open a new school and work with a team of dedicated educators and staff members to establish a culture to best serve students.
He’ll get the opportunity as the first principal of Plainview Elementary School, the newest Rutherford County school set to open in August 2021. Director of Schools Bill Spurlock made the hiring announcement today.
“Dr. Gonyea is a strong instructional leader and has the ability to build instructional capacity throughout his faculty,” Director Spurlock said. “He is the ideal administrator to launch our next school.”

“Plainview Elementary will be the foundation for what is built there,” Gonyea said. “I’m really excited to be a part of what Rutherford County Schools has planned.” CONTINUE READING
