The Lakota school district recently announced that Scott Kaufman, the athletic director at Wyoming High School, will join the administrative team at Lakota East serving as an assistant principal and also as athletic director.On Monday, the school officials tweaked that announcement, saying Kaufman will serve at those positions at Lakota West instead of Lakota East. Richard Bryant, who served as the athletic director at both schools this past year, will serve at those same positions at Lakota East next school year.
It is a homecoming of sorts for Bryant, who became the athletic director and assistant principal at Lakota East in 2009. He did not serve as an assistant principal this past year. Gerry Weisgerber, who is retiring, served as an assistant principal at both East and West.
Kaufman started his professional career as a middle school math teacher at Princeton Junior High. He served from 1998 to 2011 as the athletic director at Princeton High School. In 2011, he was named athletic director at Wyoming High School.
Kaufman graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. with a bachelor of science in education. He earned a master of education in 2005 and his principal licensure in 2012, both from Xavier University.
Both Kaufman and Bryant will have salaries of $82,500 next school year.
