On Thursday, March 21, the Cedarburg School District announced that Ms. Alli Rudich, current principal of Lake Shore Middle School in the Mequon-Thiensville School District, has been selected to be its next Director of Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment. Rudich has been serving the Mequon-Thiensville School District since 2011 when she began her tenure as the principal of Donges Bay Elementary School. After six years at Donges Bay, Alli transitioned into the role of principal at Lake Shore Middle School beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.

“The decision to leave the Mequon-Thiensville School District was a difficult one for me due to the amazing 13 years I have had in the district,” said Rudich. “It has been an honor and privilege to work at both Donges Bay and Lake Shore. The staff, families, and students I have gotten to know and love over the years have a very special place in my heart. MTSD is an amazing place to learn, grow, and work.”
