Mr. Doody

Dear JH/SH Granville Parents and Families,

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the Interim Principal of the Granville Junior/Senior High School.  I bring to this position many years of experience including serving numerous interim  positions as both Superintendent of Schools and Building Principal in area school districts.  Previously, I had the pleasure of serving the Granville community as the Interim Superintendent of Schools back in 2017, and I look forward to working in the Junior/Senior High School.  I am well aware of the rigorous and diverse curriculum that strives to meet the needs of all students.  Additionally, I look forward to working with the entire staff to foster a safe and supportive environment that encourages students to explore their passions, engage in extracurricular activities, and develop essential life skills.

I began my tenure earlier this month when I had the opportunity to spend some time with Beecher Baker getting reacquainted with the Junior/Senior High School.  Mr. Baker provided me with a very organized, comprehensive overview of the building which enabled a seamless transition.

As soon as I began, I met with every class to introduce myself to students and begin the process of getting to know them.  I was immediately impressed by their impressions of the school, their enthusiasm about their learning experiences, and their pride in being Granville students.

During the coming weeks I look forward to visiting classrooms frequently, working together with teachers to support learning opportunities for students and getting to know students and parents.  If you ever have a question or concern, please don’t hesitate to call me or send me an email at  I am confident that by working together, we can continue to enable our students to learn and achieve their highest potential.
