Hamilton County Schools Superintendent Rick Smith announced Tuesday that Jim Jarvis has accepted the position of principal at Ooltewah High School.
Mr. Jarvis is currently an assistant principal at Ooltewah, and has worked for the Hamilton County Department of Education since 1984.
His new assignment is effective immediately.
Mr. Jarvis was placed in charge of the school recently after both principal Mark Bean and assistant principal Beverly Hollingsworth were suspended without payment pending an investigation regarding conduct issues.
Mr. Bean later retired.
