Longview, TX — Pine Tree ISD is closing one assistant superintendent position while transitioning an administrator to new duties as a leadership coach, Superintendent T.J. Farler said Monday night.
K’Dawn O’Rear has moved from assistant superintendent of human resources to a leadership coach and assistant principal stationed at Pine Tree Elementary School, Farler said. The assistant superintendent position will be eliminated, she said.
Assistant Superintendent James Skeeler will take on a majority of the human resources duties while continuing to oversee student services. Farler said O’Rear’s duties will also be spread to Assistant Superintendent Nate Carman, who oversees curriculum and instruction, as well as herself.
The transition was partially O’Rear’s idea, Farler said. O’Rear was not at Pine Tree’s school board meeting Monday and could not immediately be reached for comment.
