School Board shifts administrators

The King George Schools have been doing some personnel shuffling this summer.

As reported last week, Kevin D. Newman was hired as principal of King George Middle School to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Seidah Ashshaheed, which was effective June 30. Newman came on board at the end of last week, following action by the School Board on July 18. He lives in King George and most recently served as principal of Colonial Beach Elementary School since 2006.


CENTRAL OFFICE & KGHS SHIFTS
Some other administrative shifting has also taken place by recent action of the School Board on July 18.

Shana Curtis, a special education teacher at King George High School, was shifted to a central office position. Curtis was approved as Secondary Program Specialist at a salary of $44,100.

The position was listed as “new” on the personnel action sheet, but the position has actually been held by Katie Feltner.

According to the division’s Human Resource department, Feltner was given a title change to Elementary Program Specialist, which appears to be a new position. Since Feltner’s position change did not require School Board action, it is presumed there has not been an adjustment to her salary of $50,659 plus a stipend of $2,520, as reported earlier this year.

Following Diane Eskey’s retirement as Director of Guidance at King George High School, which was effective July 1, the School Board transferred Robin Mitchell into the guidance director position as of Aug. 1.

Mitchell has held the position of Coordinator of Testing for the last year, at a salary of $65,744, which included a stipend. Her new salary was listed on the personnel action sheet at $67,744.

Another change made by the School Board at a previous meeting on June 27 was to upgrade KGHS Assistant Principal Ann Bueche from 11 months to 12 months, boosting her salary from $75,000 to $83,523.

In addition to the switches mentioned, Dick Roberts retired effective July 1 as assistant superintendent as previously reported. It’s not clear whether that position will be filled, though it is not currently posted as a vacancy on the division’s website.

In the wake of Roberts’s departure, School Board action last week included designating Director of Personnel Bill Wishard as the superintendent’s designee through the end of this calendar year. Wishard and Kristine Hill, Coordinator of Curriculum & Instruction, were also authorized to sign official correspondence in the absence Superintendent Candace Brown, whose resignation was approved earlier this year, effective Dec. 31.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE COURSE
At the July 18 meeting, the School Board hired Calvin “Butch” Norris, currently a deputy with the King George Sheriff’s Department, as a part-time teacher for a new Criminal Justice I class beginning this fall at King George High School.

Norris is scheduled to start on Aug. 22 when other new teachers report back to school, which will be following his retirement as a deputy. Norris is familiar with the high school and its students due to his assignment for the last several years at KGHS as its resource officer.

The course in criminal justice was approved earlier this year at a meeting on May 23. It was noted at the time that for the first year it would be offered with a class each of the two semesters. It is anticipated that additional sections would be added the following year.
