From Steve Boynton, Superintendent of Lincoln County Schools
Lincoln County School District Superintendent Steve Boynton has announced additional administrative changes that will support positive impacts at Toledo Elementary and Yaquina View, as well as to the district as a whole, for the coming school year.
“I am pleased to announce these changes,” Boynton said. “Our strong team of administrators are dedicated to our students. The changes in roles and duties will allow these administrators to bring their best to our students and teaching staff at these two schools, as well as district-wide.”
Kristin Becker has been named principal at Yaquina View, the Kindergarten through grade 2 school in Newport. Becker joined Lincoln County School District in 1994 as a teacher. She became a Nationally Board Certified teacher in 2004, and advanced into the role of principal for nearly three years. She has also served as the Community Curriculum Resource Liaison for the district, and has been a mentor teacher the last four years.
Libba Sager, current principal at Yaquina View, will serve as Special Programs administrator in the coming school year. She will oversee various different programs including Division 22 standards, Charter School liaison, and oversee the 21st Century Schools program. She will also coordinate and train in some teacher professional development across the district. Ms. Sager began her service with LCSD in 2005. She has been a teacher, Associate Principal, Title I administrator as well as principal in her years here.
Paul Tucker, current Assistant Principal/Athletic Director of Toledo Jr./Sr. High, has been named the new principal of Toledo Elementary. Mr. Tucker brings many years of administrative experience to his new position. In addition, his knowledge of the community and extensive elementary teaching background make him a natural fit.
Rilke Klingsporn joined the district in 2012 as an administrator on special assignment, then became the Oceanlake principal in 2013. Family obligations necessitated her spending more time at home this year, and she will be returning to work in the district in 2016/17 as Assistant Principal at Toledo Elementary. Her knowledge of curriculum and instruction, especially in mathematics, will support the work already started at Toledo Elementary.
