The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City announced today that Principal Michael Wasser was moving to an administration position in the district's educational services department.
“By working in our educational services department, Mr. Wasser can contribute to our students’ educations in bigger ways,” said Superintendent Doug Heuer in the press release. “His experience working with McDonald School District’s continuous improvement plan and with federal government programs will serve our students well.”
Wasser was formerly a superintendent in the McDonald district, according to the press release.
The district is looking to fill the principal spot at Fairfax and also for the 2012-2013 school year. Former Principal Sherry Miller she had last week.
Fairfax and Gearity are two of three elementary schools and be repurposed as part of the district's proposed facilities master plan.
The press release indicated that the district has posted two surveys, one for Gearity and one for Fairfax, so that staff, parents, students and community members can share their input on their ideal principal as the district conducts its search.
“It’s essential we find the best candidate,” Heuer said. “The search has already begun, but we will take our time and consider staff, parents, students, and the community’s feelings.”
