Principal Dammeyer to Retire, What Happens Next?

March 04, 2019

After 9 years at Stenwood, Principal Dammeyer is retiring!  So what's next for Stenwood?  FCPS has implemented the principal selection protocal, led by Region 2 Assistant Superintendant, Dr. Zuluaga.  The process is thorough and has many steps.  Each step will be added to this feature/announcement as our community moves through the process.


Step1: Principal Selection Process Info Session, Thursday, March 7 at 5:30

Step 2:  Community written input.  To help Stenwood hire a principal, FCPS welcomes your input on the leadership characteristics, skills and experiences needed for our school.  Please e-mail your ideas to or mail your suggestions to Adam McGeehan in Human Resources, 8115 Gatehouse Road, Falls Church, VA   22042-1203 by Friday, March 8th


Step 3: Principal vacancy has been announced to the principal pool.  The position advertisement will end Wednesday, March 13.  In addition, Stenwood Elementary staff and community go through the panel selection.


Human Resources also has a Stenwood Principal Selection Powerpoint that outlines the entire process.
