Tyson added that the office of legal affairs would move under human resources and an open records request specialist position would be created to help handle any received records requests. The chief legal officer position and a legal administrator position will be eliminated.
She thanked the shifted employees for their service, especially Drake, who has led his division since Joshua Williams left in August 2018.
“A lot of people don’t understand that that job is a heavy lift,” she said. “Every day. Every week. Every month... . Dan, we appreciate you filling the gap and taking on the tough assignments.
“I know more than anyone the importance of the role of interim.”
Several promotions also were announced, including elevating area principals Melanie Pearch and Rodney Swanson to regional superintendent roles. Monika Davis, who had been the interim information technology chief for more than a year until recently, will become executive director for information and innovation for that division.
