Beginning April 23, 2018, Sidney High School will be under the leadership of Interim Principal Brooke Gessler. Principal Zimmer will be shifting to Sidney Alternative School to serve alongside SAS Principal Clayton Westerbeck.
John Scheu addressed why this change is occurring, "Assessing district needs, some administrators have been reassigned by me to new positions for the remainder of this school year. Strengths administrators can offer the district and being the right fit at the appropriate time are also considerations."
Gessler has served the district in a number of capacities in her career, first as an English teacher at SHS, then as an assistant principal at SHS, and most recently as curriculum director for the district. She will finish out the school year as SHS interim principal. Her main priority is to finish the year out strong with students and staff united in this same effort.
