MANSFIELD, OH - A grades 7-12 "campus principal" will be appointed for Mansfield Senior High School and Mansfield Middle School for the 2018-2019 school year, according to Mansfield City Schools' website.

The new leadership position could be filled as soon as June 19th, the day of the board of education's next meeting. On Tuesday, the board of education clarified that they did not wish to fill a "campus director" position, but are rather looking to fill a "campus principal" role.

Superintendent Brian Garverick stated that the two primary differences between these two job descriptions are that the 7-12 principal would not provide executive leadership for the Career Tech Education program, but they would be responsible for conducting safety drills. Additionally, the 7-12 principal will also be responsible for creating a unified campus, attending community events, and being "highly visible", which was not a job requirement for the campus director position.

The campus principal will ultimately be required to direct school improvement, work with budgeting, financial affairs, and parent involvement.

Interviews have begun to fill the position, according to Garverick.

The board moved to abolish the campus director position and approve the 7-12 campus principal job description during their last meeting. Both motions passed with 4-0 votes by Judy Forney, Sheryl Weber, Gary Feagin, and Chris Elswick. Renda Cline was absent.
