Edmond North principal announces resignation
The leader of Edmond’s largest high school has resigned to accept a position with the state Education Department.
Edmond North Principal Jason Pittenger resigned Wednesday to become the next executive director of accreditation for the state agency, according to the school district. His last day is July 20.
“Jason Pittenger has been an excellent leader who advanced curriculum and instruction at Edmond North,” said Superintendent Bret Towne. “We wish him continued success in his new role.”
Pittenger becomes the latest administrator at Edmond North to resign, joining assistant principals Ellen Vannoy and Chris Helling, who left to pursue other opportunities in education.
Their positions have been filled.
The search for Pittenger’s successor has already started, Towne said.
“My goal is to hire a leader who will continue to build upon Edmond North’s academic excellence while fostering a collaborative culture that engages students, teachers, parents and the broader community,” he said.
Pittenger, who had been the principal since 2011, said he is stepping into his new position with the hopes of “positively impacting students across the state.”
“I have been blessed to serve our community and the students of Edmond North High School for over a decade,” he said. “Great things lie ahead for Edmond North and I consider myself lucky to have been a part.”
