UPDATE: P.J.’s Principal Resigns
City Times Staff
P.J. Jacobs Jr. High Principal Jeff Gulan has resigned.
Interim Superintendent Lee Bush confirmed the news Thursday morning.
“He submitted his resignation for personal reasons,” Bush wrote an email to the City Times.
Gulan was hired last June from a pool of 40 applicants interested in replacing Jon Vollendorf, who left the school to take the job of principal at SPASH.
Gulan came to the area from the Hurley School District, where he worked for nine years as a principal of grades 7-12 but was on paid administrative leave when he was hired in Stevens Point.
Gulan earns $110,000 a year. His contract was set to expire June 30, 2017.
Bush said the district’s new superintendent, Dr. Craig Gerlach, would decide how to proceed in hiring a new principal after his term begins in June.
Florence Haley, human resources director, said Gulan’s resignation was submitted on May 18 and effective June 30.
