Robb Virgin, principal of Eden Prairie High School, is starting a new position with the school district on July 1.
On Thursday, May 5, Eden Prairie Schools announced that Virgin would become executive director of personalized learning.
Virgin has been principal since 2018. He served as an assistant principal in Minnetonka before coming to Eden Prairie Schools.
“We are excited about the leadership Dr. Virgin will bring to this role,” said Eden Prairie Schools Superintendent Josh Swanson. “He has been instrumental in the implementation of Designing Pathways, expanding opportunities and enrollment in rigorous coursework, implementing innovation processes that have led to system improvements, and increasing graduation rates. The experiences, skills, and knowledge he will bring to the role will help us move toward achieving our mission.”
Virgin wrote in a principal’s update that “being your principal has been, without question, the most engaging, fulfilling, and enjoyable professional experience I have ever had.”
He said the “opportunity to influence the fulfillment of the vision and goals of Eden Prairie Schools across the entire system is what excites me most about my new role.”
The district will immediately begin the search process for a new EPHS principal. According to a posting on the district’s website, that includes collecting input from staff, families and students on the qualities they would like to see in the next principal.
