Welcome to the Royal School District! On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, I thank you for your interest in our school district. It is an honor to serve the children and patrons of our community. Each year our employees work vigorously to provide high quality educational experiences for our students. We strive to offer a safe and positive learning environment that will facilitate a successful future. In doing so, we make every effort to improve academic achievement on a daily basis.
As the new superintendent for the Royal School District, I look forward to getting to know students, staff and patrons as I integrate myself and family into the community. I am eager to learn more about the Royal culture as well as identify areas for growth.
It is my sincerest expectation that your students have a wonderful and successful experience while attending Royal Schools. I invite parents and community members to become actively involved in their students educational experiences. Additionally, I would encourage everyone to visit any of our four schools and see the exciting educational activities that are taking place. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (509) 346-2222.
Royal School District #160
June 30, 2016
Rick Follett was recently named Interim High School Principal. In June, Principal Matt Ellis accepted the position of Superintendent of Lind-Ritzville Schools. With a vacancy so late in the year, the Board of Directors decided to name Mr. Follett as the Interim High School Principal for the 2016-2017 school year. When timing permits, a more thorough process will occur to select the permanent High School Principal. Mr. Follett has served as an administrator at Royal High School for 9 years.
Andrew Perkins was selected as the Executive Director of Student Services. He is taking the position at the district office vacated by Carolyn Bunch, who was the Federal Programs Director and is leaving the district after 9 years. Mr. Perkins has worked in the district in a variety of roles for 14 years. His duties will include managing federal and state programs as well as additional student services such as career and technical education (CTE).
The time has come for incoming Superintendent Roger Trail to officially begin his work at Royal School District. He has had the opportunity to spend numerous days in the district transitioning, meeting people, and helping to hire key positions (he even taught a summer class for teachers). Mr. Trail is excited to work with Mr. Perkins and Mr. Follett in their new capacities.
Have a safe and fantastic holiday weekend!
