Outgoing Roane County Director of Schools Toni McGriff said Gwen Johnson will be the first principal of the new Dyllis Springs Elementary School.
Johnson had been serving as the principal of Oliver Springs Elementary School.
McGriff said Kendra Inman, who had been principal at Dyllis Elementary School, will be the assistant principal at the new school.
Dyllis Elementary closed after the 2011-12 school year.
The new school, which was part of the system’s $32 million building program, is scheduled to open for the 2012-13 school year.
Oliver Springs Elementary will become a middle school. That principal position has not been filled.
New Director of Schools Gary Aytes will hold interviews after July 1, McGriff said. The system also has an opening for an elementary education supervisor, the position Aytes held.
McGriff, whose last day on the job is June 30, said another principal position could come open, depending upon who is hired to replace Aytes as elementary supervisor.
