A longtime Tempe Union High School District principal is moving
up the ladder, becoming the district's new associate
superintendent. Jim Denton, principal of Corona del Sol High School
since 1995, could replace Steve Adolph as associate superintendent
as early as next week. Adolph was promoted to superintendent in
May. Associate superintendents in the district assist the top
administrator in overseeing principals and schools, but Denton had
a slightly more humble take on his future duties. "Basically, in
the role of associate superintendent, I'll be doing whatever Mr.
Adolph wants me to do," Denton laughed. A resident of Tempe, Denton
started teaching in the district in 1978. He received his master's
degree in secondary education from Arizona State University. Denton
said he'll probably be working half days split between Corona and
the district office until a replacement principal can be found to
assume the reins of the high school. Then he gets to get his feet
wet. "This is going to be new to me, so it's definitely a
learn-as-I-go kind of thing." Jason Ludwig can be reached at

What's in a name? If it's the right name it could be more than
$5,000. Corona del Sol High School has upped from $1,000 to $5,000
the reward for the name or names of the person or persons
responsible for last month's threats against the Tempe high school.
Corona is in the Tempe Union High School District along with Desert
Vista and Mountain Pointe high schools, and the school is about 4
miles away from Mountain Pointe. In addition to those funds, local
parents have donated more that $700 to the reward fund, and the
donations keep coming. "I know it's going to go up, I just don't
know by how much," said Corona principal Jim Denton. If the
perpetrators aren't caught, Denton added, all of the proceeds will
go to Tempe's Thomas J. Pappas School for the homeless. Between
April 10 and April 14, the school found four threats scrawled on
the boys' bathroom walls and in front of the school warning that
violence would strike the school April 20. April 20 - the
anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, the
anniversary of Adolph Hitler's birth and four days after the
Virginia Tech rampage that left 33 dead - came and went without
incident. --Jason Ludwig can be reached at (480) 898-7916 or
