District 833 makes administration recommendations

District 833 announced potential administration changes Monday.

District administrators on April 26 will recommend the School Board appoint Susan Risius as the principal of Royal Oaks Elementary and Trent Hanson to the position of assistant principal at East Ridge High School.

Risius would fill the position left by current Royal Oaks Elementary Principal Theresa Blume-Thole, who will be moving to Cottage Grove Elementary this fall.

Risius comes to the district from Burnsville schools. She has been an elementary principal in that district for six years; prior to that she worked for an elementary school in Ames, Iowa, for seven years.

Hanson, East Ridge's current activities director, would fill the position left by current East Ridge Assistant Principal Dennis Ross who will retire at the end of the school year.
