As Farmington High School (FHS) assistant principal Tyrone Weeks moves into a district-wide administrative position, Executive Director of School Services Jon Manier will temporarily fill his post.

Starting December 9, Weeks will become Director of State and Federal Programs, School Improvement, and School Safety Director, and Manier will start his work at FHS.

“I’m excited to have the chance to work directly with students on a daily basis again,” Manier said in a press release.

From 2006 to 2009, Manier served as the principal of Forest Elementary School, and he has held various administrative roles since 2009. Prior to coming to Farmington Public Schools, he worked for West Ottawa Public Schools as an elementary school principal and high school assistant principal.

Manier earned his Bachelor of Science in History and his Master of Educational Leadership with a K-12 administration certification from Western Michigan University.

Weeks joined the district in 2017. He served as Principal/Director of Adult Education, and taught English and History in Ann Arbor Public Schools. Prior to that, he served as Assistant Principal at Pioneer High School and at Plymouth High School.

Weeks earned his Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Montana, his Michigan Provisional Teaching Certificate from Eastern Michigan University, and his Master of Arts in School Principalship from Central Michigan University. He is also completing his Central Office Certification from Oakland University.

The FHS Assistant Principal position has been posted and the interview and selection process is underway.

“We wish Tyrone well as he starts his new role in the district and welcome Jon to Farmington High School to lend us support through this transition period,” FHS Principal Tom Shelton said.
