The Hood River County School District announced the appointment of three people to serve as elementary school vice-principals. The district is adding the positions for the upcoming school year. Two of the new vice-principals already have been working for the district, with Vickie Schmidt taking the new position at May Street and Amy McConnell appointed to the job at Westside. Jim Mangan, most recently a principal at a dual-language immersion school in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District, will become vice-principal at Mid-Valley Elementary. Superintendent Dan Goldman said the district was “thrilled” to be adding support at the three schools. The hires are pending school board approval.
