Coeur d’Alene High School principal Randy Russell has been named the new Freeman School District superintendent after a months-long search.
“Our community was fortunate to have a quality pool of candidates interested in our superintendent position. We interviewed four great finalists,” said Brent Fetsch, Freeman school board chairman. “We are grateful for the participation and involvement of staff, students, and community.”
Russell has been the principal at the high school for five years. Before that he worked in Spokane Public Schools where he was high school assistant principal.
Russell earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Whitworth University.
He’ll start on July 1.
