Garrison High School principal resigns

Garrison High School principal resigns

You could have heard a pin drop. No one knew the announcement was coming. But when Superintendent Steve Brannan said high school Principal Darwin Routledge had given his verbal resignation Tuesday, board members were left dumbfounded.
“We hate to lose him. He did an excellent job,” conveyed board President Duane Hummel
Routledge has accepted the principalship at Minot’s Bishop Ryan High School. His salary was $56,130 for a 200-day contract.
Routledge has only been with the district since January 2010, coming on board in the middle of the school year. He was also the Garrison-Max head football coach. The announcement leaves the district in the lurch, searching for both a principal and football coach.
But Brannan quickly put board members’ minds at ease saying he’s already received interest in the position.
“There are going to be some candidates,” Brannan said.
