ALEXANDRIA, Minn. -- Alexandria Public Schools is pleased to announce that Todd Johnson will be stepping into a .4 Middle School Activities Director role at Discovery Middle School. He will retain his current position with Community Education as Recreation Coordinator but at an adjusted capacity. Johnson brings over 25 years of combined experience in youth recreation, with 22 years under the former Lakes Area Recreation and over three years with Alexandria Public Schools Community Education. School Board approval took place at the May 15 regular meeting. Johnson will begin his duties on July 1.

Within his capacity as the Community Education Recreation Coordinator & Middle School Activities Director, he will continue to oversee Community Education adult and youth recreation programs and coordination of activities at Discovery Middle School. This shared position is beneficial in many ways - financially prudent with a shared cost between the general fund and the community education fund; efficient use of staffing resources; taps into the skills of current staff; and supports great flexibility with parent, student, and community communication.
