The search for a new principal at Dixon High School is underway and last night, the Dixon Unified School District’s Board of Education met in closed-session to discuss how to proceed.
On Friday, the district announced that it would not re-hire Principal John Barsotti to return for the 2012-2013 school year. Although no official announcement has been made, board president Irina Okhremtchouk said that District Superintendent Brian Dolan and herself discussed a possible candidate.
The school board discussed last night what options it had to replace the outgoing principal. The district essentially has two options. It can either appoint an acting principal for a year at DHS or open the hiring process similar to the way it did when Principal Ivan Chaidez left his position in Dixon for one in Napa.
