BOE Approves Administrators for FY ‘15

Written by  Special from Hayley Greene, BCS Wednesday, 14 May 2014 09:58

  The Bulloch County Board of Education met in a called executive session Tuesday afternoon to vote on three separate personnel recommendations, one of which was a slate of contract renewals for principal positions, assistant superintendents, and directors.


  The principal and central office positions were originally scheduled to be voted upon at the Board’s regular session meeting May 8, but Superintendent Charles Wilson, removed them from his recommendations that he presented  to the Board during executive session.


  The Board approved contract renewals for 13 principal positions, three assistant superintendents and three directors. 


  The Board did not approve renewal of the contract with Statesboro High School Principal Marty Waters, who was placed on paid administrative leave on Friday, May 9, after a Statesboro Police Department investigation resulted in Waters’ arrest for failure to report child abuse.


  Superintendent Charles Wilson said that Waters would remain on paid administrative leave through the end of his current annual contract which ends June 30. Wilson also said the school system will not offer Waters an administrative contract for the upcoming 2014-2015 contract year, which begins July 1.


  Waters has served the school district for 15 years, and he became principal of Statesboro High in 2005. Dr. Ken LeCain, one of the school’s current assistant principals, has been appointed by Wilson to serve as acting principal.


  Jon Willoughby was approved as the new head football coach and physical education teacher for Portal Middle High School effective July 14. Portal will host a press conference at the school Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. to introduce Willoughby, who replaces former head coach David NeSmith. Nesmith resigned to accept an offensive coordinator position at Bradwell Institute.


  Joranna Sanders was approved as a new director of mathematics effective July 1. Sanders will serve as a content specialist is this academic area for fourth through twelfth-grade math teachers, a key position as the district continues to implement the state’s new Common Core Georgia Performance Standards.

  The Board approved contract renewals for a slate of 13 principal positions, three assistant superintendents (Dr. Kevin Judy - human resources, Monica Lanier - organizational effectiveness, and Dr. Mary Felton - curriculum & instruction), and three directors (Megan Blanchard - school nutrition, Leslie Schlierf - director of special education and Paul Webb - director of transportation).
