The North Judson-San Pierre School Board Tuesday night expressed appreciation of the man who has led the corporation for the past six months. They recognized Interim Superintendent Dr. Robert Boyd during the “Bluejay Way” portion of the meeting for his “outstanding service” in that capacity.

Boyd took over in January following Superintendent Lynn Johnson’s abrupt retirement at the end of December. He led N.J.-S.P. through the “right sizing” of the corporation, which resulted in the issuance of 24 reduction in force notices. At the time officials said those cuts were necessary in order to reconcile cuts in state funding due to declining enrollment following last fall’s failed push for a tax increase.

The school board last month hired Dr. Annette Zupin as superintendent. She will take over that job July 1st.

The North Judson-San Pierre School Board Tuesday night approved a revised memorandum of understanding with their special education cooperative. The corporation is a member of Joint Educational Services in Special Education, or JESSE. As part of the “right sizing” initiative approved earlier this year, N.J.-S.P. cut special education services. Oregon-Davis has since picked up the speech and language pathologist hours N.J.-S.P. cut. The new memorandum of understanding reflects 70 percent pay for that employee will come from N.J.S.P. and the remaining 30 percent from O-D.

The North Judson-San Pierre School Board Tuesday night hired a new principal for the combined junior/senior high school. The vacancy was created by the recent promotion of Dr. Annette Zupin from high school principal to superintendent.

Jim Polite will take over the job on July 1. His administrative experience includes one year as assistant principal at Kankakee Valley High School, and four years each as principal and assistant principal at Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Valparaiso. He will be paid $86,000 per year.

Polite graduated from Washington Township High School in rural Porter County and says he always appreciated that small school setting.

“I really enjoyed having an opportunity to work with both ends of the spectrum – the younger students at the middle school level and then also the older student at the high school level. This provided me a wonderful opportunity to be able to demonstrate and work with both ranges of students, who I feel I’m very effective with. It also gave me an opportunity to return to a small school setting, which I’ve longed to do.”

Polite’s goals include improving the schools’ letter grades and working to bring ISTEP scores up, especially in the math area. He also wants to establish better communication with the community and share with them all of the good things that are taking place at North Judson-San Pierre Junior/Senior High School. Beyond that Polite says he wants to continue to create and establish an environment in the building that’s conducive to learning and to helping each and every student each and every day to reach their full potential.

The school board on Tuesday also approved salaries for North Judson-San Pierre Elementary Principal Mike McBride for $86,060 and Junior/Senior High School Assistant Principal Kevin Cox. He will earn $67,400 in 2016-17. Those are the same salaries both were getting during the 2015-16 school year.

When does the boys/girls (insert sport here) start?  Who's their first game against?  Where will it be played?
