Greater Clark hires two directors

JEFFERSONVILLE — Greater Clark County Schools hired two new administrators to head up transportation and technology departments.

Upon the current director of transportation’s retirement, Milt Clayton, Gary Green will take over his position Dec. 3. Green serves as the director of student services for the Indiana Department of Transportation. He has worked as a transportation director, principal, assistant principal and a dean in other districts.

In a press release, Superintendent Andrew Melin said he thinks Green will serve as an excellent director of transportation.

“Gary Green will be a valuable asset and I’m confident in his ability to set systemwide goals for the district’s bus transportation service,” Melin said in the release. “His countless years of experience in defining procedures for student safety will offer the highest level of quality service for our students.”

At the Greater Clark school board meeting Tuesday, board member Becka Christensen asked Melin if Green had a commercial driver’s license, which would allow him to substitute as a bus driver if needed. Melin said he did not, but it’s common practice to hire directors who don’t hold that license so they can manage the department and take care of any problems instead of worrying about whether they’re driving or not.

The district also approved the hiring of Brett Clark as the new director of information and education technology. He serves as an eLearning Coach at Glenwood Leadership Academy in Evansville. Clark will oversee maintenance and upgrade of computer hardware and software as well as local and areawide networks.

Melin said in a press release that he’s glad to bring Clark on board.

“Brett is highly regarded in his current position, is creative, and has been a valuable resource for teachers in his school,” Melin said in the release. “I am confident that his experience and expertise will help the district set our vision and goals to efficiently support a 21st century learning environment.”
