Grand Couty High School administrator Cari Caylor has been selected to act as the interim associate principal at high school for the upcoming 2013-14 school year, Grand County School District officials announced recently.

Caylor will temporarily fill the vacancy left by Lance LeVar, who returned to his home state of Arkansas this summer to take an administrative position at a school district in the Little Rock area. LeVar, who had been associate principal at GCHS for the past four years, started work at his new job on July 1. He is now working as a program administrator at the Pulaski County Special School District.

Caylor has been a teacher and served as an administrator at GCHS for the past several years, most recently as the director of the Careers and Technical Education department. She also served as the Sterling Scholar adviser to high school students over the past two years.

In addition, GCHS computer teacher Jim Stocks will assume Caylor’s duties as Careers and Technical Education director for the upcoming school year. Stocks, who had previous stints as principal at both Grand County and Monticello high schools, has been teaching in the CTE department at GCHS for the past several years.

The job changes for Caylor and Stocks are an interim measure implemented to give the school district more time to select a permanent replacement for LeVar’s position, school officials said.

GCHS principal Stephen Hren said that interviews were held in early July, shortly after the school district sent an email message to staff indicating that the interim position would be filled in-house. The email encouraged any interested and qualified candidates who already work for the district to apply. The Grand County Board of Education was scheduled to officially vote on the administrative changes at its regular board meeting on Wednesday, July 17.
