Effective July 1, seven Shenandoah County Public Schools administrators will take on their current positions at different schools throughout the division, according to Superintendent B. Keith Rowland.
Rowland sent an email out to the school district's faculty last week, informing them of the changes.
"We're trying to enhance the development of our leadership team," he said Tuesday. "We want to give our staff opportunities to grow in other areas, instead of remaining stagnant in one position. As a school district it's our responsibility to grow our administrators."
Rowland said he couldn't release information on any particular reason the changes are being made, because they are "personnel matters."
Chris Cook, principal at Central High School since 2008, will assume the same position at Signal Knob Middle School. Missy Hensley, the middle school's principal since 2007, will transfer to Central.
Both assistant principals at Central will be reassigned as well. Holly Sheffield will go to Peter Muhlenburg Middle School and Connie Pangle will transfer to W.W. Robinson Elementary School.
Morgan Saeler, assistant principal at Stonewall Jackson High School and Heath Johnston of the same title at Peter Muhlenburg Middle School, will fill the assistant principal roles at Central.
Scott Schletner, assistant principal at W.W. Robinson Elementary will take on the same role, but at Stonewall Jackson High. Rowland said Schletner had experience at the high school level prior to coming to Shenandoah County.
The administrators will receive orientation and training before the start of the school year this fall, Rowland said.
The changes were discussed at the last school board meeting on June 19, and Rowland said members were "on board with the changes."
