Coupeville starts search for middle school principal

The Coupeville School District is looking for a new principal to lead its middle school after learning that Melissa Rohr is leaving the district to pursue another opportunity in Southern California.

Rohr, who’s served as the assistant principal for both the high school and middle school in her first year in Coupeville, submitted a letter of resignation earlier this month, claiming she was offered a position she couldn’t pass up.

As part of a reorganizing process that will begin this fall, Rohr was slated to become principal at the middle school.

Superintendent Jim Shank said the school district will begin immediately the process of hiring a middle school principal to start in August.

“She did a great job as assistant principal,” Shank said of Rohr. “We wish she’d stay.”

The change in personnel won’t affect the school district’s plans to restore a stronger middle school identity, Shank said.
