Four area schools are in the process of searching for new principals and the public is invited to weigh in on the process in candidate interviews ahead.
This afternoon at Homer Middle School, candidate interviews will be conducted at 3:30 p.m. Parents and members of the public can sit in on the interview and provide written feedback afterwards. Another chance comes Monday at Homer High School during Kenai Peninsula School District interviews from 4 to 6 p.m. At the Susan B English School in Seldovia and in the Port Graham School, interviews take place on April 30 at 3:30 p.m.
Another school in the district in also seeks a principal, the Nikiski North Star Elementary School.
David Larson of Homer Middle School heads back to the classroom after several years as first assistant principal at Homer High then as principal of Homer Middle School. Principal Allan Gee at Homer High resigns at the end of the school year for a return to the Lower 48. Sherry Hingley, principal of Seldovia and Port Graham schools, also is heading off. She plans on a move to the Central Peninsula where she’ll work for Cooper Landing and Sterling’s schools.
Hingley has been in Seldovia for the last seven years. The first year she taught 4th through 8th grade in a multi-year classroom, and then became principal. For the last two-and-a-half years, she has been regional principal for Susan B. English and Port Graham.

    Perhaps the district will hire a principal with principles to the high school this time, one who won’t pretend that a rape did not happen so the star football player could get the team in the playoffs?

    There is something terribly wrong with the high school system that allowed a rapist to continue playing football, and that includes the coaches, administrators and police officers that all knew this crime took place and choose sports over justice.

    That type of behavior encourages and enables more perpetrators to commit crimes knowing that their crimes will be taken care of because they have connections and are too important to be prosecuted.
