Quincy Public Schools fill three administrative positions


Debbie Johnson, Marcey Wells and Jason Fink.

QUINCY — The Quincy School Board will consider recommendations to fill three administrative roles at the April 27 board meeting.

Retiring Superintendent Roy Webb and incoming Superintendent Dr. Todd Pettit will advance the names of Jason Fink to be the next principal of Rooney Elementary School, Debbie Johnson to be the district’s director of music and Marcey Wells to be the director of The Academy.

Fink is currently a school administration manager at Rooney and is a former principal at Baldwin North, back when the district had all of the city’s 4th through 6th public school children in one building and Baldwin was divided into three sections. He takes over for the retiring Melanie Schrand.

Johnson began her teaching career as the Director of Bands at Hamilton High School from 1995-1997.  In 1997, she began teaching in the Quincy Public Schools where she has taught band, chorus and general music.  Currently she is a band director at Quincy Junior High School and Quincy Senior High School.  In addition, she teaches a junior high jazz band and is the sponsor of the QHS Color Guard. 

Pettit was the district’s director of music before being hired as the district’s next superintendent in February. He officially begins his duties July 1, but is currently transitioning into the role.

Wells is currently the assistant director of The Academy, a Regional Safe School Program serving students in grades 7-12 and/or have an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). The Academy’s goal is to meet the needs of students who require academic and social emotional curriculum delivered in a smaller, more structured setting. 

Wells takes over for the retiring Lori Miles. Wells was also a former principal at Adams Elementary School, which no longer exists following the district’s reorganization and construction of new elementary schools.
