Zimmerman keeps principalship

BY KATHLEEN FOX kfox@paducahsun.com

The interim title has been removed and Victor Zimmerman has been named principal of Lone Oak Intermediate School.

The school's site-based decision making council selected him from among several other candidates Tuesday night, according to Jayme Jones, McCracken County director of public relations. Zimmerman became interim principal Nov. 11, when he switched positions with then principal Matthew Dobson.

"It feels nice, and I'm glad to be able to step in permanently and bring stability to the school community and the staff," he said.

Zimmerman began the school year as one of five assistant and the House Four principal at McCracken County High School. Dobson requested a mid-year transfer, citing a desire to work with high school students. Zimmerman had expressed a desire to work with younger students again.

He served as principal of Lyon County Middle School from 2004 to 2011. He then was Reidland High School principal from 2011 to 2013, prior to the school's consolidation with Heath and Lone Oak into McCracken County High last fall.

"Mr. Zimmerman will build on the excellent leadership he has already provided at Lone Oak Intermediate School," Superintendent Nancy Waldrop said. "He brings successful experience as a school principal and a strong commitment to student learning."

Lone Oak Intermediate School, which opened last fall in the former Lone Oak Middle School, houses fourth and fifth grade students.

The new intermediate structure led to a flow of parental concerns throughout the year about curriculums, facility problems including with the heating system and a lack of age-appropriate playground equipment.

Zimmerman said the school administration is working to continue to institute more effective instructional practices. He mentioned a greater emphasis on teacher-student relationships with a set-up for next school year that will have groups of three teachers in three classrooms with the same group of about 84 students.
