Administrative Shuffle For School District
Placeholder Image
Less than two weeks after graduation day for the Class of 2008 at Escalon High, there has been some major re-shuffling of administrative positions in the school district.

School board members on Tuesday night approved two new appointments, with current administrators moving to new positions. Both changes are connected to a pair of resignations, with El Portal Middle School Principal Wilson Nacario and Assistant Principal Jill Polhemus both submitting resignations earlier this month.

"The board made two appointments, for the El Portal principal position they appointed Mark Vos and Dave Lattig will be the new assistant principal at the high school," explained Escalon Unified School District Superintendent Dave Mantooth. "These are two shifts in-house and we're very pleased."

Vos had been serving as assistant principal at the high school and now moves in to the top post at El Portal.

"Mark has been in the district for four years and we have found him to be a consistently fair individual with integrity," Mantooth said. "He was at a point where he was ready to accept more responsibility and the board is very comfortable with this, very excited."
