BCSC hires new principals

BROWNSBURG — BROWNSBURG — Despite recently approving a little more than $3 million in budget reductions, the school board of trustees in Brownsburg approved the hiring of three principals at its Monday night meeting.

Susan Wise, Scott Chambers, and Shane Hacker were all unanimously approved by the board to join the Brownsburg Community School Corporation (BCSC) for the 2011-12 school year.

Wise is the current assistant principal at White Lick Elementary School. She will replace Kat Jessup who was named as BCSC’s assistant superintendent in February. Wise has 18 years of teaching and administrative experience.

“The staff, as well as Mrs. Jessup and myself, feel she is just the perfect person to go there,” BCSC Superintendent Dr. Jim Snapp said.

Chambers, currently a principal Hamilton Southeastern’s Riverside Intermediate School, will fill the roll of principal at Reagan Elementary School. Chambers had previously been a  principal within Spencer Owen Community and Greenwood Community schools.

Hacker will be the new assistant principal at Brownsburg High School and is the current mathematics department chairperson at Ben Davis High School. He also serves as a Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellow at the University of Indianapolis.

Hacker, a current Hendricks County resident, said, “I am very excited to join the administrative team at Brownsburg High School. I look forward to beginning my journey as a Bulldog.”

Snapp said the appointments fall in line with the recent cuts. Five elementary school assistant principal positions were eliminated, as well as the dean’s positions at the high school.

“We decided to fill the dean’s positions with one assistant principal,” Snapp said.

More than 109 applicants jockeyed for the elementary school openings. Those candidates were narrowed down to 16 and then down to five. Snapp said a panel of 28 Brownsburg teachers, parents, and support staff were key in deciding who to bring on board.

The corporation plans to hire a principal for Cardinal Elementary School and to announce that appointment at the May 9 school board meeting.

Dana Hicks, currently serving as principal at the shared campus of Cardinal and Delaware Trail elementary schools, will serve only at Delaware. The two schools will have one head principal each, instead of sharing Hicks and having two assistants.
