After an interview process including a nationwide search, phone interviews, on-campus interviews and meetings with members of the school community, the Brookings-Harbor School District has hired DeAnne Varitek as the new high school principal.
Varitek most recently worked as a principal in the Clarke County School District in Athens, Georgia.
Both Brookings-Harbor High School Principal Lisa Dion and Vice Principal Mark Herbert will be leaving after the 2018-2019 school year. BHSD officials are still searching for a vice principal and have narrowed the search to two finalists.
BHSD Superintendent Sean Galligher may also be leaving, as he is currently a finalist for the superintendent position in Creswell, Oregon. The Creswell School District said they expect the successful candidate to begin July 1.
