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.

“Her focus on detail and building relationships with families has resulted in improved student achievement,” Brandsma said.

“The Special Services department has also received consistently high ratings during annual reviews for programs from the preschool through post-graduation level.”

Amy Miller, the school district’s spokeswoman, said the director’s position has been posted and is open to external and internal applicants with the goal of replacing MacMeekin by July 1.
