Beginning July 1st, Kelly Halvorsen, current principal at Winona Senior High School in Winona, will assume the position of Director of Learning and Teaching; the position formerly known as Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
The switch was approved by the school board Thursday night.
Halvorson will replace Jenny Bushman, who is leaving the district in June to begin working in the Sauk Rapids school system. Halvorsen joined Winona Area Public Schools as a Physical Education and Health teacher in 1997, and has served as an associate principal at both the Winona Middle School and Winona High school before being named WSHS principal in 2010.
No word on who will replace her as high school principal......
