Hartley, Gault named principals

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Schools did not have to look far to find new principals for the Discovery Academy (currently Washington Elementary) and Lincoln Junior High.

Andrew Hartley, now Plymouth High School assistant principal, will be heading up the Academy in the fall. Current principal, Michelle Riise, was named to a newly created position of Director of Development within the last few weeks. Her appointment left an opening for a principal for the 2012-13 school year.

Reid Gault is now serving as the assistant principal at Lincoln Junior High. He was unanimously approved by the board to replace Dan Funston for the next school year as principal. Funston will be stepping up to assistant superintendent.
