Documents show that Dr. Robert Dillon, who previously worked as principal of MRH Middle School, applied to become principal of the Sustainability Academy at Lawrence Barnes in Burlington, Vermont.
He applied for the position on Dec. 28, 2012. He interviewed for it on March 13.
A PDF linked to Dillon's name at the bottom of the page includes his application for the job.
Burlington is a familiar place for Dillon, who traveled there with other MRH educators.
In early summer of 2012, Dillon went with three other MRH educators to a course on Sustainability Education held annually at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT.
In Sept. 2011, Jeanné Collins, superintendent of Burlington Public Schools, blogged about 13 MRH educators visiting the Sustainablility Academy, and mentioned they had visited MRH 18 months earlier.
Former MRH superintendent Dr. Linda Henke, high school principal Kevin Grawer and assistant middle school principal Mike Dittrich were given as references on the application. Henke and Grawer wrote letters of recommendation. Henke's letter is dated Nov. 24 and Grawer's is June 13.
Dillon was contacted about his visit to Vermont on Monday morning, but declined comment to Patch. He said he would have additional thoughts once he has a new position in place.
