The Pella Community School Board will hold a virtual meeting Monday, April 13, at 4:30 p.m. On the board’s agenda is the hiring of Margaret Kirkwold as the new Lincoln Elementary Principal.

Kirkwold, if approved, will replace outgoing Principal Rich Schulte. The board held interviews last week with finalists.

A vote will also be taken on the extension of the pandemic pay resolution. Pella Schools are closed until Friday, May 1, at this time.
