From the Principal

2/25/20

Dear Sollers Point Technical parents, guardians and students,

I am writing to inform you that I will be retiring from Baltimore County Public Schools and Sollers Point Technical High at the end of the year. My last day at Sollers Point Tech will be June 30, 2020.

It has been a privilege and an honor to serve as your assistant principal and principal for the past 13 years. Sollers Point is and will continue to be an outstanding career and technical magnet school committed to inspiring students to achieve their educational and career goals by providing students with ever expanding opportunities for advanced training, college study, and careers for the future.  

During my tenure as principal, we increased enrollment, student certification/licensure rates, CTE program completion, and program attendance rates.  We also reduced suspensions and student program dismissals.  We provided every student with rigorous, relevant, and culturally responsive instruction in order to provide a 21st century academic and career-technical education resulting in students who are career and college ready. 

Being a principal can be a very challenging job; however, the students make it worthwhile, and I hope I will be leaving Sollers Point prepared for future success. There have been many changes since I arrived at Sollers Point in 2007, including the opening of the new school in 2013 and the introduction of new programs in Biomedical Science, Computer Science, Baking and Pastry Arts and Diesel Engine and Power Systems.  It is my wish to see the school and our career and technical programs continue to grow and serve the southeast and northeast communities of Baltimore County.  

I am very sad to say good-bye to everyone I have had the privilege to work with during the past 13 years.  Our staff members always put students first, our families are friendly, supportive, and caring and our students are simply the best!  I feel fortunate to have been part of the Sollers Point community and I will always cherish the time spent learning with all of you.

My retirement represents an exciting transition in my life and an opportunity to reflect on past accomplishments while pursuing interests in cybersecurity and post-secondary education. 

I look forward to saying farewell to our seniors who will be transitioning to the next phase of their lives on Thursday, May 21st during our annual Senior Recognition Ceremony.

Yours in Education,

Michael L. Weglein
