Manassas Journal Messenger | Schools get administrative overhaul
In addition to a new superintendent, Prince William County Public Schools will be seeing a few more administrative changes in the upcoming school year.
The Prince William County School Board approved an administrative reorganization during a special session Wednesday night.
George Kisha, the former assistant superintendent of business in the Pittsford Central School District in upstate New York, was named to the new position of associate superintendent of finance and support services for the county schools.
The new department was created to combine the existing Management and School Services departments.
Kisha’s new position replaces those held by Wayne Mallard, former associate superintendent of management, and James Bettis, former acting associate superintendent of school services.
The School Board appointed Mallard to act as deputy superintendent.
Michael Mulgrew, principal at Brentsville District High School, was appointed the new Area 4 associate superintendent.
Kris Pederson had been serving as acting Area 4 associate superintendent.
Area 4 includes 19 schools in Woodbridge and Dumfries.
Both Pederson and Bettis will continue serving in their roles during a transitional period, school officials said.
In another change, the School Board appointed Eva Thorpe, former deputy clerk, to the position of clerk to the School Board.
