Washington Island residents can meet the new leadership team behind its school district at a meet and greet event this Saturday. On July 1, the Washington Island School District Board split the role of superintendent into three separate positions. Two out of the three are familiar faces with Sue Cornell being promoted to business manager and Michelle Jordan to special education director. Michelle Kanipes left her position as dean of students and activities director at Southern Door School District to become the island’s middle and high school principal. Board President Amy Jorgenson told DoorCountyDailyNews.com earlier this month that they wanted to take a different path after three superintendents resigned in approximately eight years.
The meet and greet event will take place at Washington Island School from noon to 2 p.m.
