Eclectic Middle School principal Dane Hawk also retired and Blair Andress, Holtville Middle assistant principal, will move into the top EMS slot. Kristina Lewis was transferred to the HMS assistant principal job.

Cindy Veazey, Wetumpka High principal, transferred to a Central Office post, and Kathy Corbman, a WHS assistant principal retired. Dr. Robbie Slater moved from a Central Office job to the Wetumpka High principal spot.

Rashawn Blassingame moved from ECAP director/interim director to ECAP/iCare director of alternative educational programs.
