The District is making some administration changes when school resumes in January 2014. Dr. Karen McKenzie is currently splitting her time between being Principal at Fern Ridge Middle School and supervising Special Education Services district-wide. She will be moving into the Special Education Director role full-time. This is due to the departure of Mitch Kruska, who will assume a new position with the Oregon Department of Education on December 20th. Peter Barsotti, who is now part-time Associate Principal and part-time Math Teacher, will assume the Middle School Principalship for the remainder of the school year. The District will be filling the half-time Math Teacher position. While this represents a few major changes, the affected staff are already familiar with the new assumed roles which should make for a smooth transition in all areas.
