Roosevelt Elementary principal reassigned

WILLMAR — Roosevelt Elementary School in Willmar is undergoing a change in leadership.

Principal James Hill has been reassigned to the district’s central office as a “principal on special assignment,” Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard said Wednesday morning.

Cheryl Nash, the district’s curriculum director, will serve as the school’s interim principal through the end of the school year, he said.

Hill is on as non-disciplinary leave this week and will return April 7 to the district offices at the Willmar Education and Arts Center. Hill will work with upcoming changes in the district’s integration programs, do research and fulfill other duties assigned by the superintendent.

“We’ll fill his day,” Kjergaard said.

The Minnesota Data Practices Act prevents him from providing more information about the reasons for the transfer, he said.
