Dr. Kasey Teske no longer CRHS principal

As of Monday, October 2nd, Dr. Kasey Teske has been reassigned within the Twin Falls School District and is no longer working as the principal of Canyon Ridge High School.

Dr. Teske will remain employed by the school district but will work in an administrative capacity in the District Office. The reason for the change is unknown.

In a notice released October 2nd by Eva Craner, the public relations director for TFSD, to Canyon Ridge parents and families, she explained that there has been an abrupt change in administration personnel at CRHS. The statement goes on to say that Dr. Teske will no longer serve as CRHS’s principal, and instead, Vice Principal Scott Thompson will assume the role of Interim Principal for the time being. 

Craner assures CRHS families that operations at the school will continue without change, and CRHS staff are still committed to maintaining a professional and productive learning environment. 

When asked about CRHS’ next steps moving forward, Mr. Thompson provided the following statement: “Since being asked to be the Interim Principal at CRHS it has been a whirlwind of added responsibilities.  I am very lucky to have such supportive staff members.  Everyone at CRHS and in the community has been so positive and helpful.  The teachers at CRHS are the best, and they know what their students need to have to be successful.  I am going to do whatever it takes to keep CRHS moving in the right direction.  Our students are going to continue to receive the high level of education that has already been put in place.  I am not here to make major changes.  The programs that are in place right now are working well, and there is no need for change.  Canyon Ridge High School is a fabulous place, and  I love coming to work each day.”

Various CRHS and district employees are helping in the CRHS office to cover certain administrative duties since CRHS now only has two principals, Principal Thompson and Vice Principal DJ Gilbert, in the building.

Dr. Teske served as CRHS’s Principal from 2013 into the 2023 school year and, in 2017, received the Principal of the Year Award from The Idaho Association of Secondary School Principals.

    Why was this done, especially if it puts a strain on the administration?
