Perkins Township School District announced Tuesday morning that it has named high school principal Chris Gasteier as the district's new communications director.
The move is in response to community feedback, according to district officials.
"Community comments given through the district community survey, discussion at public Board meetings, and individual conversations with community members have indicated a significant need to improve district communications, especially a sense of listening to the community," officials said in a statement.
Gasteier will take on his new role immediately. Mark Dahlmann, former high school assistant principal, will return from retirement on Aug. 1 to take up leadership at the high school.
