Cabell board to vote on new principals
HUNTINGTON -- The Cabell County Board of Education will vote on three people seeking principal jobs when they convene at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, at 2850 5th Ave., Huntington.
That includes Cabell Midland High School, the largest high school in the state the past two years, with more than 1,800 students. The recommendation from Superintendent William Smith is for associate principal Kelly Daniels to get the position. She has held that position at Cabell Midland since 2009.
She would replace David Tackett, who recently applied for and was approved to become the new administrative assistant for secondary schools. Tackett was principal for six and a half years.
The other principal positions include Peyton Elementary, following the retirement of Marion Ward and the transfer of her replacement, Jennifer Ross, to Salt Rock Elementary. If approved, the new principal would be Ryan McKenzie, who has led Enslow Middle for the past few years. He had been approved to become the assistant principal of the new Huntington East Middle School.
And Laura Kasey, the assistant principal at Central City, will become principal at Meadows, pending board approval.
The agenda also includes the purchase of replacement computers for Cox Landing, Guyandotte, Highlawn and Martha elementary schools. That includes 490 student computers, 20 administrator computers, four file servers and a 32-station mobile lab. The cost is $518,880.
The other purchase on the agenda is for 40 iPad Minis for technology department training programs. The cost is $12,360.
