    ORANGE UNIFIED: “IT’S ALL SHOOK UP!”

    OUSD CHANGES 16 more Administrative Positions

    In two press releases, the Orange Unified School District announced the largest administrative shake up in years on Tuesday May 2nd for the 2007-2008 school year. The announcement was unusual because three of the fourteen changes involved were announced prior to the OUSD Trustee’s approving the new assignments.

    One of the two OUSD announcements came with what long-time board watchers are calling the “rubber-stamp” waiver that stated “Contingent on Board approval at the May 10, Board meeting” as it announced three current OUSD Assistant Principals would be given new assignments. The second OUSD announcement detailing the new assignments for the three AP’s, started out:
    “The following appointments are pending Board approval, and are set to be brought before the Board of Education during the closed session of the May 10th, 2007 Board Meeting.”

    The three positions pending Board approval are:
    • Mc Pherson Magnet Assistant Principal Jeanne Bentley will be promoted to Principal at Mc Pherson Magnet.
    • Lampson Assistant Principal Lydia Roach will be promoted to Principal of Running Springs E.S.
    • Running Springs Assistant Principal Jennifer Harrison will continue her role as Assistant Principal at Canyon High School joining her current principal Dr. Greg Bowden (who was appointed Canyon H.S. Principal last month) at Canyon H.S.

    The following is a school-by-school breakdown of the announced OUSD administrative changes:
