Evans new assistant principal at Coffman
Two new administrators were hired this week on the Dublin City School District.
The Board of Education Monday, July 9, approved two-year contracts with Corinne Evans who will be an assistant principal at Coffman High School and Craig Heath who will take over as director of data and assessment.
Evans will take over for Dusty Miller who moved to Grizzell Middle School to be principal.
"Tracey Miller, (director of secondary education), and I both walked away from Corinne's interview with us amazed because it was so well done," superintendent David Axner told board members.
Coffman High School principal Mike Ulring said Evans has been with the district for 25 years teaching science at Coffman High School and a few years in the central office helping with curriculum.
"She's a building leader at Coffman," he said. "She's always got great ideas and is always looking ahead."
Evans is a Dublin resident, Ulring said, and has had three daughters graduate from Coffman High School.
Heath will move from Hilliard City Schools to take over the director of data and assessment position from Jamie Meade.
Meade is leaving the district for a position with Battelle for Kids, Axner said.
Heath is director of assessment and research at Hilliard City Schools and has also worked as an assistant principal, Axner said.
In other district news, the board of education this week approved an agreement with Dublin that will allow the two entities to combine recreation and community education efforts starting in 2013.
The city and school district will save money by sharing program development, printing program brochures and registration processing. Costs and revenues will be shared between the entities.
"It should be a win-win as it saves both the district and the city (money)," Axner said.
"This collaboration provides benefits for both the city and the school district and aligns with our shared services goal," Dublin City Manager Marsha Grigsby said in a news release.
"City council established the goal to build on the city's existing practice of shared services by continuing to explore new partnerships with private, nonprofit and government entities, with a focus on service improvements and/or cost reduction."
Dublin City Council members approved the agreement last month that will pool the classes and camps offered from the city and community education programs the school district began offering in 2011.
