BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- The Bloomfield School Board voted Monday to accept the resignation of middle school principal Eric Boles and then decided not to fill that position for the 2012-2013 school year.
The board gave the principal duties for sixth grade to elementary principal Amy James and the administrative duties for seventh and eighth grade to high school principal Dustin Hicks.
Superintendent Toni Hill said Bloomfield was below the enrollment level that would require a middle school principal. The state has relaxed those standards due to funding shortfalls, she said, but the district is still in compliance with the original state standards.
The board will re-evaluate the middle school principal position before the 2013-2014 school year.
