  • Another member of the Hannibal public school district will have a new title when the 2014-15 school year starts in August.
    In early February, it was announced that Susan Johnson was being promoted from assistant superintendent to superintendent by the Board of Education following the retirement of Jill Janes. Now the school board has revealed that Maria Mundle, the current director of curriculum and instruction, will carry the title of assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Her duties will begin on July 1.
    “I am both grateful and excited for the opportunity to serve our district as assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction. It is an honor,” said Mundle, who called accepting the promotion an “easy decision.”
    According to Johnson, Mundle will not only have a new title when the next school year begins.
    “Maria will pick up additional responsibilities, such as, performance based teacher evaluation, teacher certification, and summer school to name a few,” she said.
    Mundle embraces the new challenges ahead.
    “Needless to say, there will be responsibilities throughout the year that simply require more time,” she said. “My new responsibilities do relate well to my other assigned areas, which I believe will help to make this a smooth transition.”
    Unlike when Johnson was chosen to be the district’s next superintendent, Mundle’s selection did not involve a formal search.
    “A search was not required because her job is not new,” said Johnson. “She will only have a new title.”
    Mundle’s promotion will not be the last change to the district’s administrative team.
    “We will continue to have three administrators next year, the same as this year.  They will consist of a superintendent, an assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, and an assistant superintendent for student services,” said Johnson. “At this time, the assistant superintendent for student services is posted and someone new will be hired for that position.”
