Director of Schools Corby King:

“When changes in leadership assignments take place, it often creates a domino effect within the district. It is critical that we have the right people to lead our schools and programs. Our district is fortunate to have outstanding teachers and administrators that have huge hearts for students that are ready and willing to lead our schools. So they have time this summer to orient themselves in their new role, we are pleased to make the announcements for next year’s assignments. We are excited to welcome these PCSS leaders into their new positions.”
