North Linn students shall become compassionate, intelligent, productive and well-adjusted world citizens who have sound moral standards, respect for human dignity, and proper regard for human and natural resources.


North Linn Community School District’s mission is to create a proud learning community where everyone counts and everyone cares. The district members are committed to developing an educational environment that offers the maximum opportunity for all students to learn and become a respectful member of the community at all levels from family to global.


We believe that each individual should achieve a high degree of competence in the basic skills necessary to live in our increasingly changing world. It is the responsibility of the North Linn community to determine the needs, interests, and abilities of each individual student so we may guide and direct student learning. Through the cooperative efforts of the North Linn learning community (students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and community), we will cooperatively program our curriculum, instruction, and assessment for each student’s greatest success.

The North Linn principal will be responsible for both management and instructional functions of the middle and high school. The high school has 190 students in grades 9-12 and the middle school has 125 students in grades 6-8. The high school principal will routinely collaborate with the administrative team which includes the elementary principal/curriculum director and the superintendent.

The principal must be knowledgeable of best practices in teaching and learning and provide leadership in the planning, implementation, and assessment of relevant professional development for all staff members. They must encourage and hold staff accountable to continue to grow professionally and experiment with new strategies to continually meet our student’s needs. Strong written and oral communication skills are imperative.

According to a feedback of all stakeholders in the North Linn School District, the following are the top desired characteristics:

  • Demonstrates a commitment to students, staff and community relationships
  • Is capable of having difficult conversations
  • Ability to hold staff accountable
  • Visible in the school and community
