Ed Fletcher has taken the helm of the Monmouth-Roseville School District. He spent the last six years as principal at the high school in Staunton, Illinois.
This is the first time he has been the top administrator for an entire district.
He has spent a lot of time during his first three weeks on the job learning the names of faculty and staff.
Fletcher says it's important to him not only to get to know them but also to know their expectations for the district. He says the employees have a great passion for education.
