Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education added four new positions to the district's administrative team Monday night.

The positions are part of a central-office reorganization plan previously announced by Superintendent Alton Frailey.

The new assistant superintendents, who will each receive a $125,000 annual salary, are:

• Mary A. Ronan, now the district's director of schools.

• Jeffrey A. Brokamp, principal of the School for Creative and Performing Arts.

• William M. Myles, principal of Lincoln Heights Elementary in the Princeton City School District.

David L. Burns, CPS' high-school restructuring facilitator, was named chief administrative assistant to the superintendent. His annual salary is $110,000.

All positions take effect July 1.

Each assistant superintendent will work with principals at a group of schools to provide support and leadership development in such areas as data analysis and developing academic intervention programs.

The chief administrative assistant will provide administrative support, handle special projects and interact with schools and the community.

Also at the meeting:

• The board approved a change in the district's master plan so that Douglass and Windsor elementaries will be merged into one pre-K-through-grade-8 Community Learning Center, to be located on a new site in Walnut Hills.

Hoffman Elementary will be a new school in Evanston. Parham Elementary in Evanston will remain as a renovation of the current site.

• Waived $5,177 in tuition for the 2002-03 school year for a Walnut Hills High School senior who moved from the district in October, but finished the year and was graduated from the school.
