Enumclaw School District sees administration changes

Jill Burnes and Terry Parker.

Changes are coming to the Enumclaw school system, both in the district’s administrative offices and at Enumclaw High School.

Jill Burnes, who has guided EHS as principal since 2008, will become the district’s director of teaching and learning. The position has been called director of curriculum and instruction; the change is being made with the pending retirement of Terry Parker, a 25-year employee of the district and former EHS principal.

Burnes started with Enumclaw in 2000, serving in the district office before becoming assistant principal at EHS in 2005. She came from the Federal Way School District where she was a teacher before serving as director of assessment and curriculum coordinator.

In her new role, Burnes will work under the supervision of Chris Beals, director of instructional technology and assessment. He heads a three-person team that includes Keri Marquand, director of student support services.

Parker will leave the district with the close of the school year and Burnes will transition to her new challenge on July 1.

The principal position at Enumclaw High School is being posted this week. District administration plans on selecting a top candidate by mid-March, with a new principal taking the EHS reins July 1.
