Pilot Rock School District is pleased to announce its new administrative team for the 2020-21 school year. Troy Jerome will return to the district as superintendent/elementary principal. Mr. Jerome is a former Pilot Rock teacher and administrator who has been serving as the athletic director in Pendleton for the past eight years. Mr. Jerome will replace Steve Staniak, who is retiring after 31 years as an educator in Oregon.
High School Principal Annie Tester will move to a new position, serving as a district-wide administrator. Mrs. Tester will take over several administrative duties, such as overseeing curriculum and serving as the district's testing coordinator, among other duties. She's also hoping for the opportunity to teach a course or two.
