Dear DHS Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break and is excited to be back in school.  I am contacting you in regard to our Assistant Principal, Mr. Barry Schrock.  During winter break, an opportunity presented itself for Mr. Schrock to take a position with Ivy Tech Community College.  Below is a statement from Mr. Schrock.

It is with mixed emotions that I announce I am resigning from my position as Associate Principal at DeKalb High School.  I have accepted a position with Ivy Tech Community College to become the Director of Academic Affairs and High School Recovery Programs.  My last day at the high school will be January 30, 2015. I am very thankful for the opportunity to work in this position and at DeKalb High School.  The students and staff have been wonderful to work with and are some of the best young adults and professionals I have ever had the experience to be around.  I’ve greatly enjoyed and appreciated the many learning opportunities I’ve had, all of which I will take with me throughout my career.  

Thank you again for the opportunity.  While I am saddened to leave at this time I am equally excited about the new opportunity before me.  I wish the students, teachers and staff much continued success the remainder of the school year and going forward.


Mr. Barry Schrock

We will look to fill this position with a temporary administrative dean.  This individual will 
help with daily responsibilities as well as supervision needs through the end of this school 
year.  Filling this position in the interim, we can identify the candidate who will best meet the 
needs of our staff and students long term. We will hold interviews toward the end of the 
2014-2015 school year hoping the individual we find can acclimate to DHS over the summer 
in preparation for the 2015-2016 school year.  

We will work to make this transition as smooth as possible for staff and students at DHS.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
