Lori Doyle will be the new principal at Southeast High School in Wichita, district officials announced.
Doyle, the district’s executive director of secondary schools, will replace Leroy Parks, who was selected earlier this month to oversee a combined program at the Chester I. Lewis Academic Learning Academy.
Prior to her assignment in district administration, Doyle served as principal at West High School and Metro-Boulevard Alternative High School.
Bill Faflick, assistant superintendent for secondary schools, announced the change in an e-mail to colleagues late Wednesday. District spokeswoman Susan Arensman said Doyle’s position in downtown administration would be filled.
Doyle’s salary will be $111,182, Arensman said.
“As part of the selection process, I gathered and reviewed feedback from Southeast staff and parents about what they wanted in a school leader and believe Ms. Doyle will meet and exceed those expectations as she leads and fosters the traditions of excellence expected for Southeast High School,” Faflick said in the e-mail.
As principal at Southeast, Doyle likely will oversee the school’s move to a new building at 127th Street East and Pawnee, which is set to open in the fall of 2016.
