STAMFORD — The city’s school district has named an interim director of early childhood education for the 2017-18 school year.

Kendra Brown, an assistant principal in the district, will temporarily replace Jennifer DeRubeis, who was recently named interim principal at Julia A. Stark Elementary School.

Brown has served as the assistant principal at Davenport Elementary School for the past three years and has held numerous positions since joining the district in 2008, including special education teacher and independent learning needs coach.

At Stark, DeRubeis replaces Edith Presley, who’s moving to South Carolina.

The appointments are effective July 1.
