Mid-Prairie School District has begun their search for new principals. Last week it was announced the High School, Middle School, as well as the Wellman and Washington Township Elementary Principals would be opting for early retirement. Superintendent Mark Schneider says right now their focusing on the high school position, with the hopes of finding a good pool of applicants.
He shares they have a very thought-out hiring process for administrative staff that includes involvement from teachers, students, parents and community members, making it a lengthy process as well.
He says the principal position, at the high school especially, can be difficult to fill, as there tends to be less applicants due to the nature of the job.
