Three people were recognized during the Warsaw School Board meeting Tuesday as the Board approved one new hire and two changes to school administration.

Todd Braddock, Kyle Carter and Jenna Moree were introduced to the Board in their new capacities. Moree was approved as the principal at Eisenhower Elementary School.

Moree earned a Bachelor of Science in elementary education from Indiana University - Kokomo in 2007, according to a news release from Warsaw Community Schools. She has a high ability certificate and her Master of Arts in educational administration and supervision from Ball State University.

She has experience as an instructional coach at Noblesville Schools and Western Intermediate, Dr. David Robertson, assistant superintendent of elementary schools, said Tuesday.

Robertson said WCS had an “extremely strong candidate pool” and Moree rose to the top of the pool.

Moree said she is excited to see what Warsaw has to offer.

Carter was approved to take over the chief technology and analytics officer role.

Carter is a Warsaw Community High School and a 2001 Grace College graduate. Carter was hired as a teacher at Jefferson Elementary School, then became an instructional coach. Carter has been principal at Jefferson Elementary for the past seven years.

Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert said Carter has always had a skillset in the technology field. Chief of Technology Brad Hagg’s and Chief Analytics Officer Shelly Wilfong’s separations were approved during May’s Board meeting. Hagg has taken a position at the Indiana Department of Education and Wilfong has taken a position at Wawasee Schools. Warsaw Schools was looking to bring someone to fulfill a joint position from Hagg’s and Wilfong’s positions as chief technology officer and chief analytics officer, respectively.

“We’re very excited to have Kyle join us,” Hoffert said.

Carter said he’s glad to put his focus into the technology and analytics aspects.

Braddock was approved to become the principal at Lakeview Middle School.

“We’re very excited to have a very homegrown leader at Lakeview,” said Dr. Dani Barkey, assistant superintendent of secondary education. Braddock graduated from WCHS, went to Indiana University, “spent a couple years in another district than came home to Warsaw.”

Barkey said she had the pleasure of hiring Braddock at Lakeview as a history teacher.

For the past three years, Braddock served as the assistant principal and athletic director at Lakeview.

Braddock said he was excited to be at the meeting, noting it was a great job opportunity for him. He also said he loves Lakeview and was grateful to the Board for considering him for the position and was looking forward to getting started.

Braddock said he is planning on doing interviews for the assistant principal position at Lakeview later in the week with several internal and external candidates for the position.

In other business, the Board approved a resolution to proceed into phase 2 of the tennis court project at WCHS with Performance Services, Indianapolis. The project was approved to not exceed $1.486 million.

Chief Financial Officer April Fitterling said WCS received the final cost estimate for the tennis courts themselves, which is just over $1 million. There is a ground remediation estimate that was included of $434,000, but that cost could come down, depending on what is needed for the ground remediation.

The project will be started this summer.

In other business, the Board learned the gym floor has been removed at Jefferson Elementary and in the process of being replaced.
