BETTENDORF, Iowa — After only a year at the helm of Bettendorf High School, Principal Robert Boley will be leaving at the end of the 2022 school year.

In my opinion, being surrounded by family is extremely important to balance the daily challenges of what we do. With that being said, I would like to let you know I will not be returning for the 2022-2023 school year," Boley said.

Superintendent Morse says that district administrators are already working on plans to fill the position before the next school year."
