The following changes in administration will take place in August for the 2019-20 school year. These changes do not increase costs in the district’s administrative budget. Five central office administrative positions have been eliminated as part of next year’s budget cuts. The responsibilities of three of those positions will be assigned to others. All personnel assignments are subject to final approval by the school board.

Jim Gray, principal at Skyview High School will be executive director of teaching and learning for high schools. Gray’s position also will include oversight of district safety/security and athletics.

Andy Meyer, associate principal at Fort Vancouver High School Center for International Studies, will replace Gray as Skyview’s principal. Kirstin Kunisha, currently dean of students at Fort Vancouver, will fill Meyer’s position as associate principal at Fort.

Fort Vancouver High School principal Jody ViDelco will move to Jason Lee Middle School as principal. Current Jason Lee principal Curt Scheidel will become principal at Fort Vancouver.

Mick Hoffman, assistant superintendent for facilities and operations, is leaving the district to become the executive director of Washington Interscholastic Activities Association. AJ Panter, who currently oversees facilities, will be director of facilities and transportation, which was previously part of Hoffman’s responsibilities.

Debra Hale, executive director of teaching and learning will continue to oversee elementary schools and  also will cover early childhood programs. Chris Olsen, executive director of teaching and learning, will continue to oversee middle schools and will assume oversight of curriculum, instruction and assessment.
