BRUSHTON — Todd LaPage not only will continue to be the Brushton-Moira Central School District’s special education director, he also will be the district’s new high school principal.
Mr. LaPage was chosen for the post after members of the Board of Education backed away from a proposal to eliminate the principal’s position. The decision came after several teachers argued that doing away with the position would not be beneficial for students or staff.
While Mr. LaPage will remain the district’s director of special education, he will relinquish his role as chairman of the district’s committee on special education. The position will be held by Jillian Riley, who is a special education teacher in the district.
The district also created a dean of students position to help keep the burden on Mr. LaPage manageable. Jennifer Lynch, a seventh- through ninth-grade math teacher, applied for the position when it was offered recently.
