Board supports principal’s plan

But plan to hire full-time athletic director instead of vice principal provokes split vote, many comments

The Payson school board on May 29 voted 3-2 to delay hiring a high school vice principal to instead hire an athletic director (AD)/dean of students. One week ago, incoming Payson High School (PHS) Principal Anna Van Zile had suggested putting off hiring a vice principal for a year and instead hire a full-time AD/dean for the upcoming year. The current half-time athletic director, Gary Fishel, has a contract to return to the classroom, although he says he will apply for the full-time administrative position. Next year, Van Zile’s plan calls for adding a full-time vice principal, bringing the high school back to three full-time administrators for the first time since layoffs started three years ago.
