PASD Administration Changes

PASD Administration ChangesSuperintendent Marty Brewer announced today that Michelle Olsen, currently principal at Roosevelt Elementary, will move to Dry Creek Elementary to take principalship.  Olsen has served as principal of Roosevelt Elementary since 2011.  Prior to that she was principal of Jefferson Elementary for ten years.

“The turnover in leadership at Dry Creek has been relatively high, and the District carefully considered all options,” said Superintendent Marty Brewer.  “Michelle and Brittane have similar leadership styles which will allow for a smooth transition.”

Jennifer Van De Wege, currently assistant principal of Roosevelt Elementary, will become principal of Roosevelt Elementary.  Van De Wege has served at Roosevelt Elementary as assistant principal since July 2016. 

“Jen has had three years’ experience at Roosevelt under the excellent mentorship of Michelle Olsen,” said Superintendent Brewer.  “She has amply demonstrated the skills and ability to lead a building, which makes her the District’s natural choice as the next leader of Roosevelt Elementary.”

Dry Creek Elementary Principal Brittane Hendricks has announced her intent to leave the school district at the end of the 2018-19 school year.

Hendricks has served as principal of Dry Creek Elementary for the past two years. The District thanks her for her service, her outstanding leadership at Dry Creek, and wishes her well.

These changes will take effect on July 1, 2019.
