Shannon McParland was named the new principal at Sioux Trail Elementary School by the District 191 Board of Education in the summer of 2013.
Before joining Sioux Trail and District 191, McParland was an assistant principal at an elementary school in Minneapolis. Previously, she was a teacher and coordinator for St. Paul Public Schools. She also has experience as a professional development specialist at the Minnesota Department of Education and as an adjunct professor at St. Catherine University.
"I am pleased to welcome three outstanding educational leaders to our administrative team," said Superintendent Joe Gothard. "They each bring skills and experiences that will be a good match for the schools they will be leading, and they are focused on success for all students."
