Three administrators currently at Davis School District have decided to move north and join Ogden schools next year.

On Thursday, April 19, Ogden School District Superintendent Rich Nye appointed 11 new principals and assistant principals in eight elementary schools, two high schools and one junior high school.

Steve Poll, currently serving as principal of North Davis Junior High, will move to Ben Lomond High School to replace Dale Wilkinson, who is retiring by the end of the school year.

“For some reason, I was entertained to come interview for the Ben Lomond job. There is no doubt that they center on student achievement, student safety, overall student welfare,” Poll said. “I guess for the first time in my life I couldn’t be more happy to say ‘Go Ben Lomond! Beat Ogden!’”

Shauna Haney, North Davis Junior High assistant principal, will move to Ogden High School to serve as the assistant principal. And Julie Nelson, Davis School District ELA coordinator, was appointed principal at James Madison Elementary School.

Nye said he is excited to work with the group of administrators next year.

“These group of individuals … (are) committed to supporting our students, our teachers, staff and helping us realize what our purpose is, and that is to meet the needs of students,” Nye said.

Maridee Harrison, currently the principal at Polk Elementary School, will also serve as principal of Taylor Canyon Elementary. An administrative intern will assist Harrison on the daily tasks.

The Ogden School District Board of Education also approved the following administrative appointments:
