Richland One employees are getting ready for the new school year to begin on August 31. Among them are 12 new principals who bring strong leadership and enthusiasm to their respective school communities, said Richland One Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon.

 

“Starting a new school year during a pandemic is far from the norm, but these talented, experienced educators are up to the challenge,” Dr. Witherspoon said. “They are already working hard to ensure that their students have a high-quality educational experience and a great year.”
