Former Vice President of School John Amato will stay at John Thomas Dye School next school year as Director of Advancement for Special Projects after a year of serving as Interim Head of School, JTD Board of Trustees Chair Caroline Wittcoff said in an email to parents and alumni.

Amato left Harvard-Westlake at the end of last year to assume his position at JTD and was scheduled to return to Harvard-Westlake for the 2017-2018 school year. Now that the JTD Board has selected Rose Helm as the new Head of School, Amato will take on this new position in which he will participate in campus master planning and continue to steward the Ray Michaud Opportunity Fund, Wittcoff said in the email.

“We are enormously grateful to [Amato] for resurrecting the culture of warmth and joy that is at JTD’s core,” Wittcoff said.
