Principals Named For Amador Schools

The Amador School Board has approved appointments of new Principals at both of the County's High Schools.   Meeting Wednesday night, the Board unanimously approved a list of personnel changes at District School sites.   Jessica Dorris, who is currently Principal at Ione Junior High, will take the Principal position at Amador High School and Troy Gassaway, who is currently Vice Principal at Consumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove will become Principal at Argonaut High School.   Ione Vice Principal Richard Modesti will serve as Interim Principal at Ione while a formal process to fill that position is underway.   James Hamilton will become Principal at Sutter Creek Elementary. Candidates went through two rounds of interview panels made of school site staff, school board members, and District staff before final selections were made and presented to the School Board.   In other business, the Board approved new courses to be offered at District Schools.   Argonaut High School will offer new computer science, game design and broadcast journalism classes.   Ione Jr High will see new classes in Drama, Poetry and Current Events, while Jackson Jr. High will now offer courses in Robotics, Drones and Art Appreciation among a greatly expanded list of elective class offerings at both Junior Highs.
