A city Department of Education official and former high school principal will now head Stuyvesant HS, The Spectator reported on Saturday.
Seung Yu is the DOE’s senior executive director of the Office of Postsecondary Readiness.
Before taking that job in 2017, he was founding principal for seven years at the Academy for Software Engineering, a high school in Union Square.
Yu’s appointment comes as Stuyvesant grapples with how to handle the fall’s academic year amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The specialized high school’s previous principal, Eric Contreras, resigned on Friday.
