Roaring Fork School District announces new Basalt High School principal

The Roaring Fork School District announced Thursday that it has hired a new Basalt High School principal.

Superintendent Diana Sirko and Assistant Superintendent Rob Stein sent an email to Basalt High School staff Thursday morning announcing that Peter Mueller, project director at The Nature Conservancy, has accepted the position.

“Peter is currently the project director at The Nature Conservancy, where he is leading the Conservancy’s effort to restore, protect and enhance the Dolores River. Prior to The Nature Conservancy, he was the middle and high school principal at the Telluride R-1 School District from 2004-2007,” their email said. “He was also director at the Rocky Mountain Academy in Evergreen, Colorado, a K-8 school, where he was responsible for hiring, evaluating and guiding instruction for 22 full and part-time teachers. He is also very familiar with the Roaring Fork Valley having spent almost 10 years as a teacher at the Colorado Rocky Mountain School and five years as the director of CRMS’s outdoor program.”
