Thompson School District announced today that it has named Dr. Jason Germain as principal of Ferguson High School in Loveland, effective August 1. Dr. Germain will fill the position that was vacated by Sheila Pottorff, who has departed the district.
Since 2014, Dr. Germain has served as chief student advocacy officer for Douglas County School District. Before being appointed to that position, he also served the school district in various roles throughout his career, including as special projects director/director of special education, principal of Plum Creek Academy and special education coordinator. His career highlights outside of education include service as the program director for the Griffith Centers for Children.
“I am honored to be able to become the next principal at Ferguson High School,” Dr. Germain said. “Alternative education is my passion and background and my training and experience highlight that. I am incredibly excited to lead Ferguson’s students, staff and community in realizing our mission of ‘fostering a diverse learning community, honoring personal potential and supporting and practicing responsible citizenship.’”
Dr. Germain holds an Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and a Ph.D. in School Psychology. Both degrees were earned at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. Dr. Germain also served as a part-time instructor at the University of Northern Colorado and Metropolitan State College of Denver.
