Shelby MacMeekin has led Special Services since 2015.

PORT ORCHARD — Shelby MacMeekin, South Kitsap School District’s head of Special Services, is leaving her position as director for reassignment to instruction or administration, the district stated in a news release.

MacMeekin joined South Kitsap School District in 2002 as a special education teacher and instructional specialist. She has led Special Services since 2015.

District Superintendent Karst Brandsma commended MacMeekin’s departmental leadership.
