Doug Schleif Named Interim Principal of Red Oak Elementary

THURSDAY, JULY 16, 2020 -- Recently, Mitch Perrine, principal at Red Oak Elementary announced his retirement after 24 years of service in the district. 


Doug Schleif, who worked in our district for 16 years, and retired at the end of the 2017-18 school year, has agreed to lead Red Oak Elementary for this coming school year. 


“We feel very fortunate Doug Schleif is able to step in and help us fill this important leadership role,” said Superintendent Mike Redmond. “With the start of school fast approaching, we were not in a position to conduct a robust search for a permanent principal. Mr. Schleif served as elementary principal for 16 years in Shakopee at both Pearson Elementary and most recently at Jackson Elementary.  His experience and knowledge of the district allow him to come in, and hit the ground running from day one.  Hiring an interim principal for the coming school year allows us to conduct a full search with wide participation in the spring of 2021 to fill the position.”
