Administrative Changes

In keeping with the new-found concept of promoting from within, the board has approved former CMS/MVMS principal Melissa Moore to the position of Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources.

In addition, the following administrative changes have been announced:

Principal - Canyon Middle School - Eric Vreeman (formerly Principal of YAS)
Principal - Yucaipa Elementary - Elizabeth Chronister (formerly AP at YHS)
Asst. Principal - Yucaipa High - Joe Hyde
Asst. Principal - Park View Middle - Joe Maletesta (formerly science teacher @ PVMS)
Asst. Principal - Park View Middle - Frank Tucci (formerly AP at RES & CES)
Asst. Principal - Valley & Yucaipa Elementary Schools - Dana Carter (former PE teacher @ CES)
Asst. Principal - Calimesa & Wildwood Elementary Schools - James Cherry (formerly AP at DES & YES)
Assistant Principal - Dunlap & Ridgeview Elementary Schools - Kristie Marino (formerly AP at PVMS)
Assistant Principal - Canyon Middle School - Mike Bennett (formerly AP at PVMS)

So, vacant positions include:

Principal - Mesa View Middle School
Principal - Yucaipa Adult School

An old science humor article, relevant to these reassignments:


The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by scientists at a major research university. The element, tentatively named ADMINISTRATIUM, appears to be closely related to BUREAUCRATIUM, a known deadly poison. It has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have 1 Neutron, 126 Assist Neutrons, 75 Vice Neutrons and 111 Assistant Vice Neutrons. This gives it an atomic mass of 313. These 313 particles are held together in a nucleus by a force that involves the continuous exchange of Meson--like particles called Morons. It is also surrounded by vast quantities of Lepton-like particles called Peons.

Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Administratium caused one reaction to take over four days to complete, when it would normally occur in less than one second.

Administratium has a normal half--life of approximately four years, at which time it does not actually decay, but instead, undergoes a reorganization in which Assistant Neutrons, Vice Neutrons and Assistant Vice Neutrons, exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic weight actually increases after such reorganization.

Research at other laboratories indicates that Administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations and universities, and can actually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.

Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at all levels of concentration. If it is allowed to accumulate, it can easily destroy any productive reactions. Attempts are being made to determine how Administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

Quote from a News-Mirror article printed on 8/16:

"An additional $800,000 is needed to complete the project. “We continue to look for individuals and/or businesses to help us with this project,” states Cavanaugh. Sponsors can make a one-time donation or a commitment for a specific amount each year for the next ten years. He further pointed out that if just eight businesses committed to $1,000 a year for the next ten years, they could meet this goal."

Last time I checked, eight businesses times $1000/year times ten years = $80,000. This number is $720,00 short! Guess we know where the board is spending our next few raises!
