Principal of new elementary school named

| January 18, 2013

Coshocton ElementaryCOSHOCTON – Dave Skelton will be named as the principal at the new Coshocton Elementary School scheduled to be completed in fall of 2013, pending approval at a future board of education meeting.

The anticipated opening date will be finalized at a later time, but the district is making plans for an October/November transition into the new facility.

Skelton is currently the principal at Lincoln Elementary and South Lawn Elementary.

Also joining the administration team at the new building will be Assistant Principal John Casey and Director of Special Services Francie Berg, who both currently serve as administrators in the district. Specific administration roles and grade level assignments are yet to be determined.

“This is a foundational decision that will help the district to move forward in the planning process for next school year,” said Superintendent Dr. David Hire. “Having a dedicated group of administrators that can begin to make specific administrative and management decisions will help accelerate the process as preparations are made to integrate and combine our three current elementary schools into one cohesive and functional school. Our administrative team works very well together, and they will now be able to help guide the rest of the school staff through the multitude of decisions that will need to be made in the coming months. We look forward to this leadership team, and our students and staff will be well served through their commitment to our schools and community.”
