The Bellefontaine Board of Education handled a few key personnel issues during a special meeting at the board office Thursday morning.

Cliff Core was hired to succeed Jason Brown as the Bellefontaine High School principal, effective August 1st.

Core has been the BHS assistant principal for the last five years.

The board accepted three resignations.

Brown resigned as the high school principal, effective July 19th.

Mark Butler resigned as the Chieftain Pride Lab coordinator, effective May 28th.

Eric Adelsberger resigned as an educational aide in the Chieftain Pride Lab, effective May 23rd.

Brown was then hired for two positions.

He will replace Butler to lead the Chieftain Pride Lab. Brown will also return as the BHS head football coach.

In December, Brown resigned the football position and Aaron Peitsmeyer was named the new head football coach.

Peitsmeyer resigned earlier this month.

Brown was recently named the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association Region 9 Coach of the Year.

The region includes Logan, Champaign, Shelby, Hardin, Auglaize, Allen, Darke, Miami, Mercer, and Van Wert counties.

The ’23 Chiefs were the first team in school history to win three playoff games in the same season. Bellefontaine advanced to the Division III regional final in November.

BCS will start its search for a new high school assistant principal.

The next board meeting will be March 11th at 6:30 p.m. in the Bellefontaine Middle School Library.
