At coffee this morning I was told that we have hired a new principle for Jefferson and Highland Park schools. The interesting part was I was also told that the new principle was a in district higher with a masters degree but doesn't currently have a administrative degree and only a provisional licence. Does anyone know who else was interviewed for the job, it seems hard to believe that we as a district wouldn't be able to draw an applicant that has already had an administration degree and also experience running a school, while I understand hiring an individual who doesn't have administration experience it seems hard to imagine hiring an individual with no experience and without the proper degree for this position especially when it is dealing with our you kids. Are we saving money by hiring an unqualified individual, are we playing favoritism, or is there another reason? Anyone know?
