New Coahoma principal hails from Eastland

June 21, 2012

COAHOMA — School district officials here have filled one administrator position and are zeroing in on filling another.

Coahoma Independent School District Superintendent Amy Jacobs said today that Brett Ramsey, who has been middle school principal at Eastland ISD the past five years, has been hired to be the new principal at Ethridge Junior High School.

Ramsey succeeds Ted Hallford, who served as junior high school principal for one year.

Jacobs was enthusiastic about Ramsey's hiring.

“He understands the challenges students and faculty are faced with in light of the new (state) assessments,” Jacobs said. “He has a very basic approach to working with faculty, students and community, and he understands the value each of those brings to a school district.”

Ramsey was selected from among 30 applicants for the position, Jacobs said.

Hallford was one of eight educators provided to CISD by the educational consulting firm JR3. CISD paid JR3 a contracting fee, and in return the firm provided salary and benefits to the educators.

Coahoma trustees voted earlier this year to terminate the district's contract with the firm, Jacobs said.

The other CISD administrator vacancy — principal at the elementary campus — is being expanded to include assistant superintendent duties.

Patricia Bennett, the long-time elementary principal, retired in 2011, then returned for another year as a JR3 employee, Jacobs said.

The district has received “numerous” applicants for the principal/assistant superintendent position, Jacobs said, adding she is hopeful the vacancy will be filled sometime in July.
