Principals ready for challenges
August 26, 2014 09:23 pm

Principal Lisa Dion, right, and Vice Principal Alex Merritt are ready to help students, parents and teachers overcome challenges spurred by recent changes in staff and grading systems at BHHS.

Teachers and students returning to Brookings-Harbor High School on Sept. 2 may do so with trepidation following a year of turmoil and changes throughout the district.

Lisa Dion, the new BHHS principal, wouldn’t blame them.

“We have a community that has lost confidence in our district,” Dion said. “We have parents and students who are feeling disinfranchised. We have teachers and staff who are disillusioned and frustrated.”

The district’s superintendent resigned this summer amid criticism of his leadership skills, the high school principal retired, and nearly a dozen BHHS teachers resigned or retired. Several teachers cited issues with low morale and last year’s trouble-plagued implementation of a new proficiency-based grading system and Common Core teaching.
