Some long-time Wenatchee School District administrators are calling it a career. District administration Friday announced the changes, effective at the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Jon DeJong (de-young), currently Assistant Superintendent of Organization Development, will become Deputy Superintendent. In his new role DeJong will have expanded supervisory responsibilities, and will make more day-to-day decisions related to the allocation of resources. A Director of Curriculum and Instruction, focusing on curriculum adoptions and professional development, will be added. District officials say that will allow Assistant Superintendent of Learning and Teaching, Jody Smith Payne to spend more time and focus on her other duties. Chet Harum, Executive Director of Student and Support Services is retiring. His position and responsibilities will be redistributed. For example, John Waldren, currently Administrator of Special Projects, will take over the oversight of student services. B.J. Kuntz, currently the District's Athletic Director, has accepted the position of Dean of Students and Wenatchee High School. The A.D. position will be open for applicants soon.
