The Prescott School Board approved creating a position of a dean of students to assist Malone Elementary School Principal Deanne Edelfesen at its recent board meeting held Monday evening.
The dean position is non-administrative as it does not require a principal's license. Edelfesen will be the sole principal of the Malone 4K program, grades K-2 in the current Malone building and grades 3-5 at will be Malone Intermediate School which is the old high school building. The dean's role is to assist Edlefesen handling these roles, especially at the K-2 grades at Malone Elementary.
The district will need to interview candidates for the new position.
