O'Bryan to be New Principal at Lake Denoon; Tess Corners, Mill Valley Will Have Slots to Fill
Linda O'Bryan will take the helm at Lake Denoon, leaving her post at Mill Valley, and the board introduces Ken Dunbar as MHS associate principal; two more administrators are now being sought for Tess Corners, Mill Valley.
In what seems to be a continual cycle of promotions and new hires, the Muskego-Norway School District announced that principal of Mill Valley Elementary School, Linda O'Bryan, will become the new principal at Lake Denoon Middle School as of July 1. The board approved her appointment at a salary of $106,792.
O'Bryan first arrived in the district serving at Lakeview Elementary, and was part of the opening staff at Lake Denoon Middle School.
She told the school board Monday night that the new position was "an incredible honor."
In addition, Bob Antholine recently resigned as associate principal at Muskego High School, and it was announced that Ken Dunbar, who has been in the Plymouth, WI school district for 12 years, would take his place. The board approved his appointment as well on Monday night at a salary of $88,455.
O'Bryan's appointment will obviously leave an open position at Mill Valley, and with the recent announcement that principal Kelly Kluck will be resigning from Tess Corners Elementary, the job of finding administrators continues. O'Bryan is replacing Ryan Oertel, who is taking on the job of MHS principal. Oertel's appointment came at the last board meeting, with a $112,000 salary. Dennis Bussen had that post until his promotion to assistant superintendent, replacing Kelly Thompson, who is filling the position of superintendent. Bussen will receive $117,877 per year and Thompson was earlier approved at a salary of $158,500.
Joe Schroeder will be leaving the district as its superintendent after five years, taking a position with the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators.
