School board backs Stein, approves Stringer

Locations: News Published

The Roaring Fork School District School Board voted unanimously on April 12 to approve Superintendent Rob Stein’s controversial selection for Roaring Fork High School principal, among other items on the routine personnel consent agenda. 

The move came after an hour-long executive session and extensive public comment on the issue at the Carbondale Branch Library, with members of the community overwhelmingly supporting current Vice Principal Keslie Goodman over Brett Stringer, Stein’s choice. In the end, while some board members expressed reservations, none found justification to overrule the choice.

“The five of us have spent a lot of time thinking about this issue and it’s not something we come to lightly,” Board Member Matt Hamilton said before the vote.
