New Stevenson High School principal named
John Carter is out as Stevenson High School's principal after two years, officials said Tuesday.
Carter was being considered for a different post within the district but instead resigned Monday, effective immediately, to take a job in Austin, Texas, Stevenson spokesman Jim Conrey said.
"We thank Dr. Carter for all of his efforts at Stevenson during his 13 years with the district, including the last two as principal," Conrey said in an email. "We wish him nothing but the best."
Assistant Principal Troy Gobble will replace Carter. The District 125 school board on Monday night approved Gobble's promotion, which Conrey said was in the works before Carter resigned.
Gobble will earn a $150,000 base salary for the 2012-13 school year, Conrey said.
Gobble, who will start his new job next week, is the 11th principal in Stevenson's history.
Gobble joined Stevenson as assistant principal for teaching and learning for the 2010-11 school year. He served in a similar capacity at Riverside Brookfield High School.
He will be replaced as assistant principal by Gwen Zimmermann, officials said.
Zimmermann has been at Stevenson since 2006, when she was hired as the school's director of mathematics.
