17-18 News & Events

68 newly hired teachers and licensed staff members were welcomed to Lincoln County School District this week during an intensive two and a half-day induction held at Newport High School.

Among the hired staff are a new school psychologist, three speech language pathologists, six counselors and 57 teachers.

Not only did these new employees become acquainted with the various systems and procedures used in the school district, they came away with the knowledge and tools to ensure a strong start to the new school year for every child.

One important change from years past is that each new licensed staff member will have an additional full day and one half day spent with the principal at the building where they will be teaching. This will allow them to have a much better feel for the unique content and leadership style set out in their assigned school and give them a chance to settle in before the first day of school.

The new teachers/licensed staff members are:

Oceanlake Elementary School: Mariah Castro, Ashley Craig, Erin Freel, Kasandra Gile, Jordan Ilett, Sarah Maltezo, Staci Murillo, Kaylie Senger, Josh Vredenburg, and Rebekah White.
