We are so excited to welcome Angela Baldus as the new principal for Royal Intermediate School! During a May 27 special meeting, the Royal School Board approved the hiring of Ms. Baldus, who will fill the role currently held by Linda Achondo. Mrs. Achondo has worked as the Royal Intermediate School principal for the past five years and has accepted her new role as Executive Director of Student and Teacher Services in Royal School District.

Ms. Baldus comes to Royal City from the Clarkston School District where she has served as principal of Highland Elementary since 2012. Prior to that, Ms. Baldus worked as principal of Orofino Elementary School in Idaho, during which time she was awarded Idaho’s “Rookie Administrator of the Year” in 2008.

“Since my first visit to Royal School District, I have felt a warm welcome and connection to the staff and community members I have been able to meet,” Ms. Baldus states. “I am impressed by the beautiful campus and facilities as well as the mission of RIS. I look forward to continuing to build on the traditions and programs in place and become an active member of the Royal community!”

Royal School District Superintendent Roger Trail says that Ms. Baldus has a proven track record as an excellent principal.

“We’re tremendously excited to bring Ms. Baldus on board and are eager to welcome her into the Royal family,” Superintendent Trail said.
