Administrative changes coming to district

Published: Thursday, June 5, 2014 at 09:39 AM.

The Gulf County School Board this week is likely to complete the filling of its administrative roster for the coming school year.

Whatever the decisions during Thursday’s meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. ET inside the board meeting room, each of the four public schools will begin 2014-2015 with a principal other than the one in place at the beginning of last school year.

Some changes have already occurred.

Jeremy Knapp, who took a leave of absence as principal at Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School in March will not be back. His interim replacement, former principal Duane McFarland is likely to return as permanent principal.

Lori Price, principal at Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School, is leaving for the district offices, where retirements will bring change.

Jay Bidwell, who was interim principal at Wewahitchka Elementary School last year, is moving to the high school.

The elementary school principals are to be named Thursday as Port St. Joe Elementary School principal Sue Gannon has requested the opportunity to return to teaching.
