Canal View Elementary Principal Carol Robinson has announced her plans to retire, effective Nov. 17, 2019. Robinson’s retirement will cap a 41-year career in education, with 20 years in Spencerport.  
On her decision to retire, Robinson reflected that she is looking forward to this “new path and will treasure the memories that she has created here in Spencerport”.    
Robinson began her career as a teacher and principal for the Diocese of Rochester, then went on to serve as an assistant principal in Webster.  She has been with the Spencerport School District since 2000, serving for four years as director of English Language Arts (ELA) and Academic Intervention Services (AIS), in 2004, as the director of elementary education for six years, and in 2010 became the principal at Canal View Elementary. 
Superintendent Dan Milgate said, “I admire Mrs. Robinson’s commitment to the education of our students and appreciate her dedication for 20 years in our district. On behalf of our Spencerport and Canal View community, I want to extend our congratulations to Mrs. Robinson and wish her all the best in her retirement.” 
Milgate indicated that he and his leadership team are committed to ensuring a smooth transition. During the interim, Lisa McCarthy, director of professional learning and acting Canal View assistant principal will serve as the principal.  We will be inviting input from key stakeholders on the ideal characteristics sought in the next principal at Canal View Elementary School.
