AES---Caleb-York---PrincipaCaleb YorkOWENSBORO, Ky. (6/3/14) — Caleb York has been selected to serve as principal at Audubon Elementary School, returning to a post he held as an interim position from 2011 to 2013.

He served as Title I coordinator for the Daviess County Public Schools district during the 2013-14 school year.

York began his education career as an intervention specialist at the RiverValley Behavioral Health Crisis Stabilization Unit and taught kindergarten and grades 2-4 Estes Elementary School in Owensboro. He joined DCPS as a staff developer at Audubon Elementary School in 2008, where his responsibilities included coaching staff, providing professional development for staff members and coordinating assessment.

In 2009, he was named assistant principal at Audubon, where he continued to coach and evaluate staff members, created and implemented a master schedule, led school initiatives and assisted with administrative tasks. During his term as interim principal, he designed and implemented professional development, developed curriculum plans and collaborated with parents, community members and staff to enhance student learning.

York received a masters degree in education from Indiana Wesleyan University, where he earned his Rank I and administrative license. He is currently enrolled in the education specialist superintendent program at the University of the Cumberlands.

Throughout his career, York said he has been a “student of leadership.” His goal is to “create a climate in which teachers are focused on improving their skills and, in turn, helping students reach their potential. I have learned that to impact student achievement, I must first focus on helping teachers grow.”

DCPS Superintendent Owens Saylor praised York’s many contributions to the district. “Caleb has proven himself to be an exemplary servant leader – one who is truly committed to doing whatever it takes to support outstanding teaching and learning in our classrooms, and success for every child, every day.”

“I am honored to be selected as Audubon’s next principal and return to a wonderful school community,” York said. “I am excited about working with the Audubon staff to continue their innovative work and supporting an environment for all students to learn. Over the next few months, I will be working to reconnect with the students, staff, and parents of Audubon. I will also be working closely with leadership groups and staff members to develop our long range goals and plans.”
