Joe Power will become an associate principal at Bainbridge High School in July.
Power is currently an assistant principal for Kingston High School in the North Kitsap School District and also serves as the North Kitsap district’s associate director and athletics director.
Prior to his leadership positions, Power taught junior and senior high school math for 26 years.
Officials with the Bainbridge Island School District said it became evident during the interview process to find a new associate principal at BHS that Power uses a student-centered approach to his administrative work and is a solid instructional leader.
In other staffing changes for the 2018-19 school year, Sean Eaton, who currently serves in the role as the school district’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) director and part-time associate principal at BHS, will be the district’s full-time CTE director.
Warren Read, who currently splits his time as associate principal at both BHS and Sonoji Sakai Intermediate School, will return to Sakai as associate principal and also work as an associate principal at Captain Charles Wilkes Elementary.
