Julie Stauber will be the new high school principal at United South Central High School after accepting an offer from the USC School District on Thursday afternoon, July 23.

The USC School Board will meet to formally ratify her contract in the coming days.

“We made the offer to her earlier Thursday and she accepted later that afternoon,” superintendent Keith Fleming says.

Stauber comes to USC from Mesabi East Schools in Aurora, which is located 60 miles north of Duluth in the heart of the Iron Range, where she has been employed as the high school principal for the last year. She has previously been a language arts teacher in the Proctor School District where she also was a staff development coordinator.

The 12-member USC hiring committee, which consisted of members of the School Board, administration, teachers and support staff, interviewed Stauber and four other candidates on Wednesday, July 22.

“Her first day on the job is scheduled to be Aug. 1,” Fleming shares.

Stauber takes over as high school principal following the retirement of Kelly Schlaak, who had been with the USC School District for 34 years.
