The 2012-2013 school year will begin with a half day on Sept. 5 this year, and many students will quickly notice at least two significant changes in the district.

No principal has been named, but the district posted the job opening in June and sought resumes before July 11. Renee Gonnella-Kenelia, the district’s director of Special Education, served as interim principal at Woodland since late May after former Principal Mort Argoe resigned.
The board has called a special action meeting for Thursday. No agenda has been released as of Tuesday morning.
