We would like to introduce Mrs. Amanda Burnett as Selkirk’s new 6-12 principal. After three years here, Mr. DeRoest moved to Pasco to be closer to his new wife and family. A committee of high school teachers, classified staff, and parents interviewed candidates and recommended Mrs. Burnett for hire which was confirmed by the Selkirk School District Board of Directors. She officially began work as principal on July 1. Mrs. Burnett has worked for the school district since 2015-16 school year starting as a fourth grade teacher and moving to the secondary level in 2019 as a College and Career Teacher. She completed her principal certification through Washington State University and is excited to begin her journey as our secondary principal. Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Burnett and welcoming her to her new role!
