School Board Approves New Administrators



This school year is winding down for our students, but Topeka Public Schools is already hard at work planning for the 2014-2015 school year.
At the May 1st school board meeting, board members approved the hiring of three new elementary administrators:
Jessica Figueroa, currently the assistant principal at Scott Dual Language Magnet Elementary, will become Whitson Elementary’s new principal.

Kelly Norman, an assistant principal at Landon Middle School, will become the principal of Highland Park Central Elementary.

Karen Williams, an assistant principal at Ross Elementary, will become the principal at Randolph Elementary.


The school board also approved the hiring of Jason Jones. He will become Highland Park High School’s new physical education teacher and boys basketball coach. 

Also approved by the board was the purchase of 900 ThinkPad Notebook computers for the district. The funding for these computers comes from the passage of the “Securing Our Future: Educate, Innovate and Protect” bond initiative. Many other updates to technology and safety are on the horizon in Topeka Public Schools and we’re so excited to make these positive changes for our students and staff!
