A new face will roam the hallways at Cambridge High School during the upcoming school year.
The Cambridge City Schools Board of Education on Tuesday approved hiring Jason Bunting as high school principal. He will replace Bob Mascolino, who will serve as assistant principal at CHS.
Mascolino said he is looking forward to his new role where he will work more with the students, an area that he feels he can make the most difference.
A native of Zanesville, Bunting has worked as a teacher and administrator. He most recently he was employed as principal of Maysville High School.
The board also approved hiring Robyn Morrow as dean of students for Cambridge Intermediate and Primary schools. April Massey, the former dean of students, was recently hired as principal at Cambridge Primary.
Morrow has worked within the district for many years, recently as an intervention specialist at Cambridge Intermediate School.
Other personnel items approved included the retirement of Terry Brown, resignation of Beverly Cullen and Sadie Bauerman, and the hiring of Tanya Dostall, administrative secretary at CHS; Kayla Wilkerson, intervention specialist at the Primary school; and Jennifer Eubanks, intervention specialist at the Intermediate school.
Two new positions — in-school suspension support monitors at the high and middle schools — were created as part of a school quality grant recently awarded to the district. Hired to fill these positions were Linda Todd and Jennifer Hickman, respectively.
Superintendent Dan Coffman added that the district is looking for a full-time social worker to be hired at the high school.
"The new hires would give the district two full-time social workers, allowing each to devote more time and be available to more students at CMS and CHS," said Coffman.
