Five submit for Coupeville principal position

Candidates are lining up in hopes of becoming the next principal of Coupeville middle and high school.

Superintendent Jim Shank said Monday that there are five applicants already for the position.

The position was posted last week after the school board approved the resignation of Principal Sheldon Rosenkrance, who accepted the position of superintendent in Estes Park, Colo.

A selection committee is being established with three members. Two were appointed Monday — school board members Vanessa Matros and Kathleen Anderson.

The committee is still seeking a third member.

Shank said the committee will start screening applicants May 28 and do reference checks on May 30.

“We’re on a little bit of a time crunch,” Shank said, adding that the timeline may be especially tight if candidates are out of state and need to make travel arrangements.

Part of the selection process will include some kind of opportunity for Coupeville School District staff and the community to meet the candidates.

The intent is to announce the new principal in June and have them start July 1, Shank said.
