Acting Super named – June 22, 2010

June 22, 2010

Here is a copy of the news release from D-38 dated June 22, 2010:

LPHS Principal Named as Acting Superintendent

MONUMENT, CO — At its June 22nd, 2010 meeting, the Lewis-Palmer School District Board of Education approved appointment of Lewis-Palmer High School Principal John Borman as acting superintendent effective July 1st. This follows the resignation of Superintendent Raymond H. Blanch.

Borman has been principal at LPHS since 2007. He has 15 years of experienced as an administrator, and more than 23 years in education. He came to LPHS from Northridge High School in Greeley.

He will fulfill the superintendent duties this summer while the Board of Education works on the process to appoint an interim superintendent to serve throughout the 2010-2011 school year. A national search will then be conducted for a long-term replacement to serve in subsequent years.

The Board emphasized that Borman will work closely with Cheryl Wangeman, D38 Assistant Superintendent of Operations, to ensure coordination of all school district functions, and to keep budgeting and other internal processes on track.

Board Vice President Robb Pike said, “We are fortunate to have many outstanding professionals in D38 to choose from for this acting position. We gave a lot of consideration to the needs of staff, students, and taxpayers. I think this solution is the best way to offer all of our stakeholders stability and reassurance for the future, in the face of many ongoing challenges.”

Pike thanked the administrative team for excellence in leadership. “Our staff members are outstanding, from the classroom to the finance office, and I am confident D38 will remain a leader in providing quality education to our students and service to our community.”

Board members said there are no other administrative changes planned in the near future. “Anytime there is new leadership, it is expected that staff will anticipate additional changes to follow. The Board would like everyone to know that we appreciate the incredible work the staff is doing and that we do not intend to implement further changes. We have tremendous challenges ahead with the budget, our reconfiguration, and other adjustments. What we need now is to move forward in a smooth transition to the new school year.”
