Prescott School District welcomed Kyle Igou four years ago as the high school assistant principal and athletic director. It was his first administration role following a solid background in teaching and coaching. He has become a familiar face to many students, parents and staff members throughout the district since fall of 2013.

Igou helped guide the transition to a new high school and has been instrumental in helping the district achieve objectives set at the high school level. This fall, he will continue his career path as the Prescott Middle School principal.

Igou was raised in the Prairie du Chien area. After graduating from UW-River Falls, he spent two years teaching in Gillette, Wis., before moving to River Falls. There he taught at the high school for 10 years. He was initially attracted to Prescott because it is similar to where he grew up and he is impressed with the sense of community.

"Prescott is small enough to know people by name, yet large enough to provide a lot of variety. It has been rewarding to work in this community and I'm pleased to continue my career in this new role at the Prescott Middle School," Igou said.

Superintendent Dr. Rick Spicuzza confirmed that Igou was selected from a strong pool of candidates following the resignation of Principal Jim Dalluhn who returned to a position at his former school district.

"We feel Mr. Igou will do a great job of building on the momentum created within the district, and carry that into our Middle School," noted Spicuzza. "We have great administrative leadership at all of our buildings and the board unanimously supported this move at their July board meeting."

Other open administration positions will be filled soon, including Malone Elementary Assistant Principal, formerly held as a dean position by Greg Lenn who chose to return to the classroom; and the high school assistant principal/athletic director position that Igou previously held. The new high school principal, Josh Fiege, was introduced in a prior announcement.
