Gerald N. Tirozzi, the longtime leader of the National Association of Secondary School Principals, will retire next summer after 12 years of service, the Reston, Va.-based organization announced last week.

Mr. Tirozzi came to the association, which is comprised of middle and high school administrators, in March 1999. His retirement will become effective on July 1, 2011.

Mr. Tirozzi’s career in public education has included tenures as superintendent of the New Haven, Conn., schools, Connecticut’s commissioner of education, and president of Wheelock College in Boston. He also served as the U.S. Department of Education’s assistant secretary for elementary and secondary education under President Bill Clinton.

The NASSP's board of directors plans to begin a search for Mr. Tirozzis replacement soon, the organization said.
