The Natrona County School District will host a forum next month with candidates to replace Brad Diller as principal of Kelly Walsh High School.
Prospective replacements have yet to be identified, according to the school district, and the application process is open until Jan. 18. The forum will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 1 in the high school’s auditorium. It will be moderated, and the district wants parents and community members to provide questions ahead of time for the moderator to ask the prospective candidates.
Information about how to provide feedback will be announced later this month, closer to the forum date.
Diller, who has been principal at Kelly Walsh for 23 years and will retire at the end of this academic year, previously told the Star-Tribune that the decision of who should replace him is up to the school district. One of Diller’s assistant principals, Kathleen Neely, will also retire this year.
The hiring process “includes an interview team comprised of representatives from KWHS staff, KWHS classified staff and KWHS student council,” according to the school district. That group of people will work with Superintendent Steve Hopkins to find a suitable candidate, which will be recommended to the district’s school board.
