Four Bulloch County schools will have new leadership for the 2014-2015 school year, which begins August 1 for students. Though each will be a new face on campus, they currently serve as instructional leaders at other district schools.
The changes are: Dr. Shawn Haralson of Portal Middle High to Langston Chapel Elementary; Dr. Karen Doty of LCES to PMHS, Julie Blackmar of Nevils Elementary to Julia P. Bryant Elementary, and Nate Pennington of JPBES to Nevils.
Bulloch County School Superintendent Charles Wilson decided to make the organizational changes after reviewing and matching the skills of the school system’s principals to the needs of the district’s 15 schools and their students,
Wilson announced the changes to the Board of Education during an executive session meeting March 27; however, because all of the changes are intersystem transfers, they do not require a vote by the Board of Education.
The school system will also be filling the principal position at Southeast Bulloch Middle School due to the retirement of the current principal, Milton Williams. The position has been posted, and the superintendent plans to have a leader in place by the beginning of the school year.
