Some Kane Area School District administrators will be switching buildings and duties under a staff realignment plan that goes into effect July 1.
Dr. Maryann Anderson, superintendent of the school district, conceived the plan, which she said would â€śre-energize the professional staff.â€ť
She said Monday that the nine-member school board has endorsed her plan following discussions at private meetings on personnel issues.
â€śChanges are good,â€ť Anderson said, â€śand they will help us move forward to keep our district in a good position.â€ť
Here is a summary of the changes:
*Jeff Kepler will leave his job as high school principal to become the first â€śassistant to the superintendent in charge of instruction.â€ť The school board acted in April to approve the title and job description for this new position.
Kepler is a former Kane Middle School principal.
*Todd Stanko will leave his current job as head of student services, including special education, to become the new â€śleadâ€ť principal at Kane High School. He is a former assistant high school principal in Kane.
*Natalie Miller-Martini will become the new â€śco-principalâ€ť at the high school. She currently serves the principal in charge of curriculum and federal and state programs. Many of the duties associated with this position will be shifted to the â€śassistant to the superintendent.â€ť
Anderson said this would be Miller-Martiniâ€™s first assignment as a building principal.
