Hollister – San Benito High School has filled two key positions, one that hires and fires all personnel and negotiates union contracts, and one that oversees student testing and helps set the district’s curriculum.

Donald Balfour has been hired as the Director of Human Services, a position that been open since Evelyn Muro retired in July. Balfour was most recently a principal at several Modesto schools and has worked as both an administrator and teacher throughout the state. He served as the director of school health for San Diego’s Children’s Hospital and Health Center from 1994 to 1996.

The other administrative position will be filled by MaryAnn Boylan, the district’s new director of educational services, who has had a similarly long career in education. This has includes positions as a school counselor, teacher and principal. Both Balfour and Boylan are scheduled to start Jan. 24.

“We are very excited to have them filled because the office has been without these two important positions for a while,” said Dr. Jean Burns Slater, superintendent for San Benito High School District.

As Director of Human Services, Balfour is responsible for overseeing all hiring and firing in the district, as well as negotiating and implementing contracts with the school’s various unions.

Boylan comes to San Benito County from the Porterville Unified School District, in the Central Valley, where she worked as the head counselor for the past three years. Prior to that Boylan was a principal at two schools in the same area and has taught middle and high school.

As a director of educational services, she will be responsible for compiling, reviewing and evaluating results of student testing programs and making recommendations in curriculum and instruction based on students’ test results.

Boylan replaces Michael Robustelli who worked for the district for 34 years, where he started as a teacher. Balfour takes the place of Evelyn Muro, who retired in July after 20 years as the head of the Human Resources.
