Some long-time Wenatchee School District administrators are calling it a career. District administration Friday announced the changes, effective at the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Jon DeJong (de-young), currently Assistant Superintendent of Organization Development, will become Deputy Superintendent. In his new role DeJong will have expanded supervisory responsibilities, and will make more day-to-day decisions related to the allocation of resources.
