ST. CLOUD -- STRIDE Academy will have a new principal leading them this fall. Diane Moeller has been selected to fill the position.

Moeller has a long history in the St. Cloud community, serving as Assistant Superintendent of the St. Cloud School District and Principal of Kennedy School.

Executive Director Eric Williams says:

"Moeller has been a colleague and partner in the past and I can't think of a better person suited for this role."

The move is still pending board approval which is expected to take place at Thursday's board meeting.

STRIDE Academy announced earlier this month they would reopen for the 2017-2018 school year, after previously stating the school would close.
