Hurley Elementary School’s principal resigns, assistant principal out on leave

SALISBURY – Hurley Elementary Principal Ryan Disseler has resigned and the school’s Assistant Principal Tiffany Eudy has been placed on paid administrative leave, Rowan-Salisbury Schools spokeswoman Rita Foil confirmed Thursday afternoon.

No reason for the action was provided, and Superintendent Lynn Moody did not respond to requests for comment. School Board Chairman Kevin Jones declined to comment.

“The West Rowan community principal and district administrators will provide administrative support at Hurley throughout this transition,” a statement from the school system read.

An email obtained by the Post and sent by West Rowan High Assistant Principal Julia Evans thanked staff for their patience as she adapted to a new environment, learned names and got to know students. Evans said she learned that she would be at Hurley Elementary until further notice and was “here to support you in any way I can.” She also complimented a recent Christmas concert and said Hurley Elementary is an “all hands on deck” kind of environment.

“I enjoyed watching the teamwork as the show went on,” Evans wrote

Disseler started as a middle school teacher, and he became assistant principal at Granite Quarry Elementary School in 2015. He became interim principal of Hurley Elementary in 2016. The interim title was removed at the school board’s January 23, 2017, meeting when he got the job permanently.

Eudy’s teaching experience includes time spent with special education students, including being an instructional coach for exceptional children teachers.
