Sedona AZ (August 27, 2014) – The Sedona-Oak Creek Unified School District continues to move forward full-speed ahead with its dual-principal concept at West Sedona School.
At its July 14, 2014 school board meeting four of five members voted to approve a plan developed by SOCUSD Superintendent David Lykins to have both a K-5 principal and a Grades 6-8 principal in WSS.
Lykins said the task of moving the school forward was too much for one principal alone and having two at the school would allow each to focus on the specific needs of their assigned grade span, eventually resulting in higher grades and better teacher retention. He said reducing teacher turnover is a first step.
