Another promotion comes within the Haverhill Public Schools leadership team to fill the post last held by new Assistant Superintendent Jared Fulgoni.

Consentino School Assistant Principal and former Haverhill High School math teacher Dr. Darshan Thakkar is being promoted, effective Thursday, as the district’s new director of strategy and accountability, Superintendent James F. Scully confirmed Tuesday. According to a resume, Thakkar has been with the Haverhill Schools since 2004, at Haverhill High before becoming assistant principal at Consentino in 2013. His past experience includes an attorney at law in private practice for “corporate and government clients on human resources, school law, civil rights, and immigration issues” and general counsel for a software company between 1996 and 2004. He was also adjunct instructor at two Boston-area colleges.

“As many of you know Darshan from Haverhill High School or Consentino School, he is widely respected by parents, staff and students. Much of this decision rests with the strong recommendation that comes from members of our staff, who respect his integrity and educational background,” Scully said in a statement.
