Switzerland eliminates adminstration position

WOODSFIELD The Switzerland of Ohio Local School District held a special school board meeting recently to discuss staff changes. The Assistant Superintendent position was eliminated by the board.

According to Larry Elliott, Switzerland of Ohio superintendent, Assistant Superintendent Neil Ritchie was released from his position and will now serve as the principal at Woodsfield Elementary.

“That was a board decision,” said Elliott.

That position was filled by Clint Abbott, who recently took a position in Barnesville School District. Michah Fuchs, who was serving Beallsville High School and Elementary principal, also took a position in Barnesville School District. Both men will fill open principal positions. House

“We are looking for someone in house to take the Beallsville principal position,” said Elliott. “We still have a lot of planning to do.”
