Dayton schools plan massive leadership change this fall

Dayton Public Schools will see massive leadership changes this fall, as at least 11 of its 27 schools will have new principals.

New Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli said she’s trying to build the administrative team she wants, calling for “the right people in the right positions.”

All nine new principals announced so far are internal hires, as are the 17 assistant principals switching roles. Two more principals are yet to be named.

“A few adjustments from the last announcement have been made as we continue to make sure we have the best teams in place,” Lolli said. “We will likely have a few more to make before we have assembled the team that will help move the district forward academically.”

Here’s a school-by-school breakdown of new staff at the schools that will have new principals:

The assistant principals at Wogaman will be Stacey Williams, who has filled in as principal at Charity Earley most of this year, and Timothy McKinney, who is an assistant principal at Dunbar High School. Some Wogaman school staff members say they advocated on behalf of current Principal Karl Perkins but his status for 2018-19 hasn’t been announced.

As previously reported, district Athletic Director Mark Baker will be replaced by Wright Brothers Middle School Principal Shawna Welch. Baker will become associate director of truancy.
