In staffing shift, Indian Hills associate principal will return next year

The Shawnee Mission School District has announced three administrative moves affecting local schools.

Brenda Hall

Mike Rasmussen, who served as the associate principal at Mission Valley Middle School in 2010-2011, had previously been scheduled to fill the associate principal’s role at Indian Hills next year. A recent decision by the district has him moving to Shawnee Mission South, where he will serve as associate principal — and following some of Mission Valley’s graduating eight graders who will attend SM South instead of SM East.

Brenda Hall, who was the Indian Hills associate principal for 2010-2011, will return to her position there under principal Carla Allen for 2011-2012. A new assignment for Hall had not been part of the district’s initial administrative announcement for Indian Hills in February.

The district will also name Jeremy Higgins as an associate principal at SM East for the 2011-2012 school year. Higgins currently serves as a chemistry teacher and the athletic director.
