In a Facebook letter sent to staff, students and families on Tuesday, July 26, Scappoose School District Superintendent Tim Porter announced that he will be recommending William Schildbach to lead the small school, which is located to the side of U.S. Highway 30, minutes from St. Helens.

Jen Angelo, who moved out of the area because of her husband's work transfer, had served as the former principal at Warren.

In the Facebook letter, Porter wrote that Schildbach has been an administrator in Alaska for the past 17 years in multiple roles, including K-12 principal, superintendent and elementary school principal.

His most current role has been principal of the Tikigaq School in the North Slope Borough School District.

"William has been working on professional learning communities and improving school climate," Porter wrote. "William also implemented a schoolwide behavioral management program utilizing social-emotional learning principles."

Schildbach has an extensive education background, having received multiple bachelor's degrees from Oregon State University in both science and education.

He received his master's degree in education administration from Portland State University in 2001 and has also earned an educational leadership certificate from the University of Alaska, Anchorage.

Porter will recommend Schildbach to be confirmed by the school board at the Aug. 8 board meeting.
