Evergreen Public Schools hires cabinet-level positions and principal transfer - 05/20/15
The Evergreen Public Schools Board of Directors last night voted to approve the hiring of an Associate Superintendent and Executive Director of Secondary Education, along with the transfer of a principal to a central office position.

Chris McMurray, currently an administrator in the Parkrose (Oregon) School District will replace Marilyn Colliflower as Assistant Superintendent, overseeing curriculum, instruction and assessment. Colliflower will retire in December after 27 years with the district. McMurray, in addition to his experience as a classroom teacher, principal, instructional coach and central office administrator, has a background in marketing and strategic business development. He graduated with a Bachelors of Arts from Sam Houston State University, a Masters of Arts in Teaching from University of Portland and has an Initial Administrative License from Concordia University.

Bill Oman will join Evergreen as the Executive Director of Secondary Education from Vancouver Public Schools. He fills the position vacated earlier this year by Ted Feller who is now the Executive Director of the Southwest STEM Network. Oman, currently Vancouver's Director of Human Resources, previously was principal at Hudson's Bay High School and associate principal at Fort Vancouver and Kelso High Schools. He has a Bachelor of Business Administration from University of Portland, a Bachelors of Arts in Foreign Language (Spanish) from Portland State University, a Secondary Education Certification from Concordia and a Masters in Educational Administration from Heritage University.

After a decade as principal at Silver Star Elementary, Janet Locascio will move to the district office as Special Services Program Coordinator overseeing preschool programs, Early Childhood special education and Elementary counselors/social workers. She began her career as a special education teacher and also worked with special education preschoolers.

"As we move forward on some important initiatives, including the implementation of a robust curriculum and technology program that will enhance learning for all students, we know the addition of these three strong administrators will help ensure success," said Evergreen Public Schools Superintendent John Deeder.

All the positions become effective July 1. The district will hire and announce Locascio's replacement shortly.

Leadership students to provide missing lunches on teacher walkout day - 05/11/15
On Wednesday, May 13, students in Evergreen Public Schools will not be in class due to a teacher walkout protesting lack of educational funding progress by the Washington state legislature. Students will make up the missing day with the extension of the school calendar until June 17. However, for Mountain View High School leadership students, they knew there was something some students couldn't make up on Wednesday: access to a school lunch. So they devised a plan to put 150 lunches in the hands of those who need them the most: students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.

The sack lunches will be assembled by the Mountain View High School ASB leadership students and handed out at two elementary schools with significant free/reduced lunch populations -Crestline (73%) and Marrion (65%)-that are within the attendance areas of the high school. Lunches will handed out to students at Marrion on Tuesday afternoon, May 12, and at Crestline on Wednesday, May 13 during lunchtime.

Lunches will be assembled Tuesday, May 12 at Mountain View High School with food donated or purchased by the leadership students. The goal is to assemble and provide at least 150 lunches, but more will be made and distributed as donations permit.
