The Weld RE-4 School District Board of Education named Michelle Scallon the new superintendent of schools at its March 29 special meeting.
“Michelle rose to the top,” said Russ Smart, Board of Education President. “It is clear that she loves our community and students, and will work to move our district forward.”
Scallon is currently the principal at Windsor High School and has held the role since 2012. She previously served as Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher / Dean of Students in Greeley District 6 (Greeley, Colo.) and as Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher / Department Chair (WiIton, N.D.).
The Board looks to approve the final contract at its April 18 meeting, with Scallon beginning the new role July 1 or earlier, pending contract negotiations. Interim Superintendent Rod L. Blunck will continue to serve in a support role through June 30, and will work with staff on a transition plan.
Information will be provided soon on filling the principal position at Windsor High School as a result of Scallon’s departure.
Scallon was selected from a rigorous and comprehensive search process that included, among others, stakeholder focus groups, an online survey, and a community meet and greet. Additionally, more than 30 highly qualified professionals applied for the position.
