School board to consider Parker High School assistant principal pick
JANESVILLE A familiar face at Parker High School will likely be the new assistant principal there this fall.
Superintendent Karen Schulte has selected Jolene Terrones to be the new assistant principal at Parker.
The Janesville School Board will consider Schulte’s recommendation at Tuesday’s meeting.
Terrones, a teacher of students with emotional disabilities, has worked at Parker for 11 years. She was the summer school lead teacher this year and filled in as dean of students last spring. She has been an instructional manager since 2006.
If the board approves, Terrones would begin her new duties Aug. 15 at a salary of $89,421.
Terrones would replace Dan Keyser, who resigned July 31 to become director of curriculum in the Monroe School District.
Terrones holds a master’s degree in educational administration from National Louis University and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Cardinal Stritch University. She received her bachelor’s degree from UW-Whitewater in 2000.
Sixty people applied for the job, the district reported. Five were interviewed.
The search was narrowed to two. The other finalist was Matt Peerenboom, a teacher at Franklin Middle School in Janesville.
On the agenda
The Janesville School Board meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Educational Services center, 527 S. Franklin St. Agenda items include:
-- Presentation and discussion of projected 2012-13 revenues, including the tax levy.
