New principal at Lake Harriet drops out

Posted by: Steve Brandt under People and neighborhoods, Politics and government Updated: June 19, 2013 - 9:04 AM

Lake Harriet Community School has a new principal for its upper campus -- again.

The district's announced choice for the post, Aaron Drevlow, told the district that he'd withdrawn, reportedly for personal reasons.  Efforts by the Star Tribune to reach him were unsuccessful. He had worked in the Stillwater district.

So the district now has told parents that Walter Schleisman will fill the seat instead. He's coming to the school in the Fulton neighborhood from Folwell Performing Arts Magnet, where he was assistant principal. He's also been a music teacher and a fine arts coordinator for the district.

Schleisman will succeed the retiring Mary Rynchek, whose name was misspelled in the district's letter to parents.
