KILMARNOCK—The Lancaster school board on Monday hired a dean of students at Lancaster Middle School (LMS). Superintendent Dr. Daniel Lukich introduced the school’s newest hire, Kelvin Evans, to members of the school board and the public.

Evans, who lives in Hampton with his wife and two daughters, wasted no time in getting started, showing up Tuesday morning for introductions to students and faculty.

The new dean brings experience as a middle school teacher in the Hampton Roads area as well as being a pastor and businessman.

In his new position, Evans is expected to handle growing discipline problems at LMS, a problem which surfaced last month after an assault on a seventh-grade boy led to over 200 parents gathering to express concern and form a new organization, Community for our Schools (CSF).

Lukich received board approval for an interim position of five months, which will cover the remainder of the school term.

LMS principal Kim Hammond noted the position will not be listed under vice principals and is not on her staff request for next term. Previously, there were two vice principals at the middle school. However, one position was eliminated during last year’s budget cuts.

The dean of students position was added to the agenda’s consent docket during the meeting. After the meeting, some members expressed dismay at having the position pop up on the agenda at the last minute without advance knowledge and with little information. However, there were no objections when the agenda was amended nor when the vote was held on adding the position, which passed on a 5-0 vote.
