Douthit Named Interim Principal at Elroy Schroeder Middle School

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – At a special Grand Forks School Board meeting at 12 p.m. today, Christopher Douthit was approved to serve as Elroy Schroeder Middle School’s interim principal for the 2019-2020 school year.

Douthit has served as an Associate Principal at both Red River High School and Valley Middle School, and as a teacher at Elroy Schroeder Junior High School.

Douthit’s background in middle-level education, proven leadership abilities, open communication style, knowledge of Marzano teaching and learning strategies, and positive disposition made him the top candidate for this one-year position.

Grand Forks Public Schools will repost this position in early 2020 and will work diligently to secure a long-term principal.

With this appointment, Douthit will be resigning as a member of the Grand Forks School Board.
