Changing of the guard for Pagosa Springs Elementary School

Search underway for new principal, assistant principal

Pagosa Springs Elementary School (PSES) Principal Kate Lister and Assistant Principal Chantelle Jordan have both resigned.

Archuleta School District Superintendent Linda Reed confirmed both resignations and sent an email out earlier this week to the elementary school staff outlining a plan to move forward.

Lister has served as principal of PSES since 2004. She looks forward to working with rural schools in a new role with Generation Schools in conjunction with Battelle for Kids.
