A significant change in the administrative operation of Calhoun Middle/High School was approved last night by the Calhoun Board of Education. There will be co-principals over both the middle and high school, with a third assistant principal being approved. The change eliminates one administrator, the principal of Calhoun Middle School, a slot which had been filled by Jane Lynch.

Michael Offutt, is the Principal of Instruction and Roger Propst is the Principal of Administration over both the middle and high schools. The new Assistant Principal over both schools is Emilio Garza, who will be coming from Logan County schools. He has been the Director of Jr. ROTC in Logan County.

Bryan Sterns, who has held the position of Attendance Director and has worked with special education students, will have additional administrative duties as Dean of Students for both schools. He will assume the duties without additional pay.

Larry Baker, Instructional Technology Coordinator at CM/HS has resigned to accept the position of Assistant Vice President for Technology at Glenville State College. He is being replaced by Jeffery Burns.

Daniel and Cheryl Fiedorczyk have resigned from the system to accept employment in South Carolina.

The Board voted to rescind the Reduction in Force lay-offs of Stephanie Crihfield Whiting and Calvin Nicholas.
