Scott Belger Named Assistant High School Principal

The Southeast Polk Community School District has named Scott Belger as the new High School Assistant Principal. Belger’s contract was approved by the Southeast Polk Board of Education during their regular meeting on May 18, 2017, and he will assume his duties on July 1.

Belger has worked for the Southeast Polk District for ten years serving as a physical education teacher, coach, interim assistant activities director, and interim assistant high school principal. He received a master's degree in education from Northwest Missouri State University in 1999 and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Drake University in 2016. “My inspiration to become an assistant principal at Southeast Polk stems from my commitment to Southeast Polk Schools, the students, the staff, and the community,” Belger shared.  “I care genuinely for all students; I want to see them be prepared and succeed in all areas of their lives.”

Recently, Belger has served in the role as interim Southeast Polk High School assistant principal. “I am excited to become more involved and continue my work assisting and carrying out our vision, mission, and core values,” he said.  “I enjoy the pace of the day, the interaction with students and staff, and helping students see their potential in academics and as a community member.”

Steve Pettit Southeast Polk High School Principal shared, “We look forward to Scott’s continued leadership as the assistant high school principal. He is a strong communicator and collaborator with a tremendous work ethic; he will continue to help us carry out our mission to prepare students for college, career, and civic life.”

Belger lives in Des Moines with his wife Margi, and children Luke and Alexis Boord.  Belger has been coaching high school baseball for 22 years and has served as Southeast Polk’s head baseball coach for the past ten years, winning two back-to-back state championships in 2014 and 2015.
