Submitted by Dixon Unified School District
The Dixon Unified School District Governing Board voted unanimously at its meeting last night to appoint Nick Girimonte as the Acting Principal of Dixon High School for the 2012-13 school year. Superintendent Brian Dolan recommended the appointment to the Board and President Irina Okhremtchouk announced the decision following the closed session vote.
The principal position was vacant after the Board voted to non-reelect John Barsotti at a meeting last week. Rather than advertise the opening and consider outside candidates, Mr. Dolan recommended that the Board appoint Mr. Girimonte as the acting principal to ensure a smooth transition and that a principal would be in place by the start of the school year.
