Knox Middle School in Salisbury has been the scene of a lot of change over recent years, particularly when it comes to the principal's office.
Now the school system will try something new to establish consistency at Knox: having two principals.
Details were announced at a press conference on Tuesday, but Rita Foil, Public Information Officer with the Rowan-Salisbury Schools told WBTV about the unique arrangement.
Through partnerships with Catawba College, Livingstone College, Novant Health Rowan Medical Center, Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation, Inc. and the City of Salisbury, the Rowan-Salisbury School System is excited to be announcing this unique and innovative plan for Knox Middle," Foil wrote in an email to WBTV.
"I just hope that it's not wasteful in the long run, that the money is not better spent with teacher assistants, media assistants, and other places in the school," Huffman added, admitting that she was willing to give the concept a chance.
Waiksnis and Dixon are both currently serving as principals at separate schools in the Rock Hill, South Carolina, school system. That is the same system that was led by Dr. Moody prior to her coming to Rowan-Salisbury.
"We kind of see our role as putting all of the pieces together and moving the school forward," Waiksnis told WBTV.
