WALLA WALLA – Walla Walla Public Schools has named Cesar Hernandez as the new principal for Green Park Elementary School. Currently, he is the school’s assistant principal.

Amy Ford, the other finalist for the Green Park principal position, has been named assistant principal. She is currently director of Walla Walla Online.

The district said the principal selection was extensive. Fifteen staff, parent, and school board representatives served on the interview and walk-through teams. The interview team spent four hours carefully reviewing the feedback staff provided on the principal input survey, participating in two comprehensive interview processes, and carefully deliberating between the two finalists. Also, approximately 50 participants attended meet-and-greet sessions to provide feedback for the decision.

Both Hernandez and Ford will start their new positions on July 1.
