The Duplin County School Board approved the promotion of Principal Tony Jones to the central office at their monthly meeting Tuesday night.
School officials were withholding information about the changes, pending some related staff changes. It was not clear if a replacement has been named.
School officials stressed that the move would not be official until after the start of the new school year, as Mr. Jones would be at North Duplin when school started. With a number of school consolidations, there will be a number af administrative changes announced across the district.
