Bend La Pine Schools has been operating with a fiercely reduced budget for several years now, and keeping within that budget, Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says he's reorganized the District to be in a great place.

 

Beginning July first, several schools will have new principals and the administration has hired new positions, as others have either retired or moved on to new jobs. "When I started the process, literally began the conversation in December, when all those retirements started to come in; my commitment was to end up cost neutral and FTE [Full Time Employee] neutral. So frankly, within about a quarter of an FTE, the same administrative FTE, I think we're almost exactly on as terms of cost. So I think I’m hitting my targets."
 
Wilkinson says they recently hired Shay Mikalson as Director of Curriculum and Instructional Technology to help fill the gap Deputy Superintendent John Rexford is leaving by moving to be the High Desert ESD [Education Service District] Superintendent. He says there is an unprecedented number of retirements that are effective at the end of the school year, and he needed to fill many of those with internal promotions and several new hires.
