administration was changing remodeling riculum, special education, teachers still had no jobs quah's good reputation in almost complete \\; Jim Swick The schools may have been shut down and silent over the summer, but the Administration Service Center has been humming ever since the arrival of new superintendent Jim Swick in July. His first task was the design of a new manage- ment system for the central office -- a "realignment," he calls it. Sini:e school let out, there have been several promotions from within and one new director hired. Swick also transferred one principal and hired two others. The changes so far are detailed below. Assistant Superintendents: Kateri Brow and Gary Newbill - i Kateri Brow Gary Newbill Superintendent Swick's administrative changes are designed to consolidate the departments that should work together. Kateri Brow was promoted from Direc- tor of Curriculum to Assis- tant Superintendent for Cur- riculum and Instruction. She will now be responsible for what students learn in the classroom and who they learn it from. She and the four directors working with her (directors of cur- vocational education and pupil services) will develop the curriculum, and she will also oversee the training teachers need to put cur- riculum policy into action. More teacher training -- and retraining -- is one of the goals of the new admin- istration, especially with the change to middle schools and four-year high schools. Many elementary teachers will be trained to teach classes at the junior high and high school level in the coming years. Brow will also see to it that programs from school to school are more equal. For example, there is no foreign language teacher at Maywood Junior High, but Pine Lake has three and Issaquah Junior has one. Gary Newbill has held the title of assistant super- intendent for the past year, but he will now oversee new areas in administra- tion. His new title is Assis- tant Superintendent for General Administration and Classified Services. Under his supervision will come the business and accounting services, main- tenance and operations, food services, transporta- tion, buildings and grounds and custodial services. All of this is a change for Newbill, who has been director of personnel and in charge of pupil services and special education during his years with Issaquah. He has also been the district's unof- ficial legal counsel. He will be ultimately responsible for the district's biggest building project in years -- the completion and renovation of Liberty High, a $4 million job scheduled for completion in the fall of 1984. Personnel: Bob Eiene ....... [ Bob Eiene His title got longer and so did the job duties for Bob Eiene, former Briarwood principal who has spent the past year as personnel administrator. He is now Director of Personnel and Staff Development, a department that sets up interview teams for job ap- plicants, reviews the recom- mendatons from the teams and sets up appointments for candidates. He also handles an orientation pro- gram for new employees. His biggest job this sum- mer, "however, has been try- ing to match unassigned teachers with open posi- tions. As of last week, 12 assigned to them and there were 14 positions that need- ed to be filled. His job is to comb personnel files to try and fit available teachers to available jobs. The two don't always match. Eiene will serve the needs of both assistant superinten- dents, providing the support personnel for Newbill's area and coordinating the teacher retraining programs for Brow's area. Curriculum: Wally Tonstad Wally Tonstad It's a brand new job and a surprise transfer for Wally Tonstad, who has spent the last six years as Issaquah High principal, he has now taken Kateri Brow's place as Director of Curriculum. With the big switch to four-year high schools, Tonstad says the administra- tion was looking for some- one with experience at the secondary school level. Tonstad certainly has that -- he's worked at Issaquah High for 29 years. Tonstad forsees many changes in the high school with the addition of 13 and 14 year old students, saying the curriculum will have to take into account the attention span and motiva- tion of the younger kids. Vocational education is another area Tonstad thinks should be more integrated into the so-called "academic" curriculum. "Students should be learn- ing how to apply what they learn in the classroom to the real world," he said. "Cur- riculum should cover the whole ball field." Special Education: Abby Adams Abby Adams Though she was hired as Director of Special Educa- tion from the Renton School District, Abby Adams used to teach at Maple Hills and feels she's coming home in a sense. She has every intention of keeping up Issa- the special education area.
