There will be many new leaders this fall at Davis schools and in the district office.

The district has hired 65 certificated employees, in part because more than 50 employees took advantage of a retirement incentive last spring, opening up numerous teaching positions.

“We are delighted with the team that we were able to put together,” said Matt Best, associate superintendent of administrative services. “This year we made a concerted effort to run our postings and interview panels in the early spring. As a result, we had a very experienced and talented pool from which to make our selections.

“We are excited and fortunate to have these new individuals join our ranks.”

New administrative hires include:

* Birch Lane Elementary: Jim Knight, principal, formerly a math specialist in the Davis school district, and a teacher and administrator in other districts;

* Emerson Junior High: Stacy Desideri, principal, formerly a vice principal at Davis High School, and Jen McNeil, vice principal, who will work as a half-time crisis and prevention manager in the school district and half-time as Emerson vice principal;

* Harper Junior High: Kerin Kelleher, principal, formerly vice principal at Harper and at Holmes Junior High, and Kenneth Durham, vice principal, formerly half-time Emerson vice principal and half-time manager of student services;

* King High School: Antonia Slagle, principal, formerly an administrator in the Woodland school district;

* Davis High School: Amelia Hess, vice principal, formerly a Davis High School teacher;

* District office: Jonathon Brunson, director of personnel services. Brunson has been principal at Douglass Middle School in Woodland since 2005, was assistant principal at Winters High School from 1998 to 2005, and was a social studies teacher and the activities director at Davis High School from 1995 through 1998.

Stephanie Gregson is the new director of curriculum, assessment and learning. She has been principal at Tom Hawkins Elementary in the Jefferson school district in Tracy since 2010.
