A two-parish administration shuffle has resulted in Jonesboro-Hodge Middle and Elementary Schools having new principals for the 2022-23 school year and a former local principal moving into the Jackson Parish School Board Central Office.
The carousel started turning after Rhonda Lee, who was the Jonesboro-Hodge Elementary School principal last year, took over as Elementary Supervisor of Instruction replacing Dorothy Dorsey who retired after 50 years of service to the Jackson Parish School District (JPSD).
This was followed by Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School (JHMS) principal, Danielle Copeland, moving to J-H Elementary in the same capacity which opened the door for Winnfield Middle School principal, Brent Carpenter, to take over at J-HMS.
In regard to additional JPSD employment opportunities, Jonesboro-Hodge High School is still taking applications for an Algebra II and Advanced Math Teacher, Band Director/Music Teacher, Maintenance and Custodial position and a substitute teacher. JPSD Administrator, David Brown, also indicated that all full time and substitute bus driver positions had been filled.
“I am pleased to say that we have satisfied our need for bus drivers and want to thank all the ones who applied,” said Brown.
