New leadership will be in place next year at Sisters Middle School and Sisters Elementary School.
SES Principal Becky Stoughton announced her resignation effective June 30, Superintendent Curt Scholl reported. A letter to staff cited "personal reasons."
"We'll be working on replacing that position," Scholl told The Nugget. "We're in a hiring process now at the middle school."
Interim SMS Principal Tara Reis is not a candidate for the position, Scholl said. Reis has missed work frequently during the school year due to medical issues and is currently on long-term medical leave.
That has created a leadership void, Scholl acknowledged. Staff needs support and guidance and "not having that person in the building does have an impact," Scholl said.
Dean of Students Michelle Hammer has stepped into a leadership role for day-to-day decision-making, Scholl said.
The District is collecting applications and will go through an interview process in hopes of having both positions filled for next year by the end of April.
