WPSD Announces the Hire of Secondary Campus Principal, Effective 2024-25 School Year

The following was a press release submitted by the Woodland Park School District.

Woodland Park School District (WPSD) announces the appointment of Dr. Tory Richey as the Secondary Campus Principal over Woodland Park Middle and High Schools, effective July 1, 2024. Dr. Richey brings a wealth of experience and dedication to education, and the district is confident he will be an excellent addition to its Woodland Park Schools community.

What makes this announcement even more special is that Dr. Richey is an alum of Woodland Park High School (WPHS). Also, many may remember him as he previously served as an assistant principal at WPHS from 2006 to 2009. After his time at WPHS, Dr. Richey continued to expand his career and expertise in education, including serving as the Cripple Creek Junior Senior High School Secondary Principal (2014-2016), Assistant Superintendent/Secondary Principal (2016-2018), and Superintendent/K-12 Principal (2018-2020) before taking his current role as principal at Home School Academy in Colorado Springs.

Dr. Richey is eager to reconnect with familiar faces and meet new staff members and families. In his enthusiasm to get to know everyone, he has expressed his intention to start working on these introductions as soon as possible. Although his official start date is July 1, 2024, he wants to ensure a smooth transition and build strong connections within our community.

Returning to Woodland Park holds a special place in Dr. Richey’s heart, as his parents still reside here. He is excited to contribute to the success and growth of the great Woodland Park Middle and High Schools and serve the wonderful community that has always been close to him.

The district looks forward to a bright future under Dr. Richey’s leadership and invites everyone to join in welcoming him back to the Woodland Park School District.
