Henderson Elementary School principal Kristen Brach will be moving to the school district office and taking over the role of district principal of learning and innovation. Brooks Secondary school vice-principal Lisa Gunnwill become the new principal of James Thompson Elementary School, a post currently held by Jasmin Marshman, who will take over the principal role at Henderson.
Shannon Behan is taking over as principal at Westview Elementary School. She will maintain her role as School District 47 International Student Program district principal.
“The program is growing,” said Behan. “We are fortunate to be able to add additional teachers to be working in the program, but I fully intend on continuing to lead and develop the international program.”
