School may be out for the summer, but leaders at the Juneau School District have a summer project — filling two empty principal slots at Thunder Mountain High School.
“Both the principal and assistant principal positions are vacant at TMHS at this time,” said Kristin Bartlett, chief of staff for the district, in an email to the Empire earlier this week.
Principal Steve Morrow resigned after a single year at the school. School leaders selected Morrow following a multi-candidate interview process in February 2020.
Earlier this spring, assistant principal Adriana Northcutt accepted the top job at the Juneau Community Charter School. She begins her new duties in August.
Bartlett said that the recruitment process to fill the positions is underway.
“Both jobs are posted on the website right now and will be open until filled. We should have a better idea of what the process will be for filling these spots by the end of this week, and that will help determine the timeline.”
Both positions appear in the Employment Opportunities section of the school district’s website.
The job post shows a pay range of $91,004 to $116,619 for the assistant principal job, depending on experience. The pay range for the principal’s position ranges from $98,886 to $126,760. Both jobs require the appropriate state license, classroom experience and a degree in education.
