This school year, Clarksville welcomes Keith Reuter as K-12 Principal. His goal is to make a difference.

     “My vision for my role is to be in classrooms as much as possible. That’s what it takes to have a healthy school and healthy organization,” Reuter said. “As an administrator, you need to know what is going on in classrooms to best serve the … students and the staff.”

     Reuter comes from serving as Dean of Students at Charles City for a year, where he provided student support and collaborated with the principal to implement behavioral support, working with the district’s Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Team. His duties were much like those of an assistant principal. He worked alongside the grades five to 12 administrative team, learning from the strengths of each of the individuals on that team and from their collective experience.

     Previously, Reuter worked for five years at North Scott as a fifth-grade teacher. It was while teaching there that he earned his Master’s Degree from St. Ambrose University. He put in many clinical hours of administrative work at North Scott at the elementary level.
