DHS Principal Resigns, 8 Run for City Council
(2007-02-28)
(ksut) - Durango High School Principal Greg Spradling has resigned, effective at the end of this school year.
According to a release from District 9R, Spradling told Superintendent Mary Barter it was "time to head down the road."
Spradling came to DHS in 2001 from Roswell, New Mexico where he was also a high school principal.
Barter praised Spradling for shepherding the school through a 23-million dollar expansion.
And she says his leadership made a significant contribution to improved student achievement.
Spradling was not available for comment.
The district will appoint a search committee immediately to begin looking for Spradling's successor.
