The St Joseph School District is in the process of searching for another high school principal.
Dr. Jeanette Westfall, Principal of Benton High School, has announced her resignation effective June 30, 2013.
In an announcement Sunday, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melody Smith said she has accepted Dr. Westfall’s resignation with regret.
“Dr. Westfall has decided to pursue other leadership positions and I fully support her in her decision,” said Dr. Smith. “Dr. Westfall is a strong instructional leader and she has helped move the District and Benton High School forward.”
Dr. Westfall was Co-Principal at Benton with Jeff Modis from 2007-2011, and has served as Principal since then. In addition, she was an Instructional Coach with SJSD for two years and a communication arts teacher at Lafayette High School for nine years.
The District will post the position this week and begin the search for a new Principal.
