CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)- A surprise post-graduation wave of retirements and requests for lesser duties has resulted in a major shake-up of Hamilton County high school principals.
Superintendent Rick Smith told Eyewitness News that after last week's graduation programs, three high school principals requested retirement or reassignments. CSAS principal Barbara Jordan announced her retirement, while Howard High principal Paul Smith will become public safety director for the City of Chattanooga. Soddy-Daisy High principal John Maynard requested a reassignment to an assistant principal post. A replacement for Smith has yet to be named. Danny Gilbert will move from Signal Mountain Middle/High to become principal at Soddy-Daisy High. Jim Boles, longtime assistant principal at CSAS, will move up to the principal's post.
Here is the announcement from Hamilton County Schools:
Superintendent Rick Smith is pleased to announce that the following individuals have accepted administrative positions for the 2013-14 school year. These administrators will begin their assignments in their new schools and / or positions on July 1, 2013.
