Several position changes have taken place among officials at Scottsburg High School (SHS) and Scott County School District 2 (SCSD2). Dr. Marc Slaton, former High Schools That Work (HSTW) principal, SHS principal Derek Marshall and Mrs. Arleen Schulze, former SCSD2 curriculum director, have all been affected by the changes.
Slaton has been moved from SHS to the Central Office to start his role as SCSD2 assistant superintendent. “I am officially in charge of curriculum, teacher quality and grants,” said Slaton.
“The first few weeks (in my new position) have been fantastic.  Everyone has been great and the transition has been fairly smooth,” said Slaton. “I am extremely excited about this opportunity.  I am really looking forward to working with our entire district now, instead of just one group of fantastic staff members.”
“I’m not sure of the why (I was moved), but I did spend two years going to school to earn a (doctorate) degree to be able to work in the Central Office someday.  When the opportunity presented itself this soon, it was a huge blessing for me, my family and my career,” said Slaton.
Slaton realizes that technology is changing everyday. “I’m excited to be one small part of an amazing leadership team as we look to continue to move this school district forward in the Twenty-first Century,” he said.
Marshall is still principal of SHS and has also taken over Slaton’s old position as HSTW principal.
“Until such time I can be brought up to speed about HSTW, Mr. Marshall has taken over HSTW,” said Schulze.
Schulze, a former English teacher, is glad to be back amongst students and was glad to receive her new job. “I kind of wanted the change myself,” she said
Schulze feels that her years in the central office have equipped her to work in school administration. “I know a lot about the entire district,” said Schulze.
Schulze has seen some things that she may wish to change. “There are a few things that probably need to be addressed in the (SHS) handbook,” she said. Some students were sad to see Slaton leave SHS.  “I thought he (Slaton) was pretty cool,” said sophomore Sierra Cissell.
