PERRYSBURG - Brook Price has been named interim director of pupil services.
Dr. Kevin Gorman, who held the position of executive director since 2007, will become the director of intervention services for the Upper Arlington Board of Education effective Aug. 1.
Gorman is relocating to be closer to his grandchildren. "This decision is bittersweet because I am excited to be closer to my grandchildren, but I truly love and will miss the Perrysburg community," he said.
"Dr. Gorman was the very first person I hired at Perrysburg and I couldn't be more pleased about what he has done for our students, families and staff," Superintendent Tom Hosler said. "Kevin is such a strong advocate for students and the programs that he supervises. He has helped transform our approach to the district's most fragile and special students."
The Pupil Services Department is in charge of special education, 504 plans, gifted education, guidance personnel, English as a second language, credit flexibility, post-secondary options and suspension/expulsion hearings.
Brook Price has served as the special education coordinator for Perrysburg Schools since 2008. Prior to that, she spent seven years as an Intervention Specialist teaching elementary, middle and high school students with special needs. She received her master's degree from Bowling Green State University in Educational Administration and Supervision.
"We are very excited that Mrs. Price has agreed to serve as the interim director. She and Dr. Gorman have been an excellent team over the last four years. Brook will work tirelessly to help students and families and continue the positive direction that Kevin has chartered with our staff," Hosler added
An open house will be held for Gorman at the Board of Education office on Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m. Students, parents, staff members and community members are invited to attend.
