Bill Betteridge, principal of Heber Hunt Elementary School, has announced his retirement from Sedalia School District 200.

Betteridge joined the district in 2006 after working eight years as an elementary school principal in the Pilot Grove school district. He served as a physical education teacher at Skyline and Parkview elementaries for one year, then as a PE teacher at Whittier High School before becoming principal at Horace Mann Elementary in 2009. He took the reins at Heber Hunt in 2011.

Betteridge earned an associate’s degree in 1974 from Kemper Military School in Booneville and a bachelor’s degree in social studies and physical education in 1976 from Park College in Parkville. He earned his master’s degree in education in 1998 from William Woods University and an education specialist degree in 2003 from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. In 2011-12, he received the Central District Distinguished Principal Award.

Sedalia 200 Superintendent Brad Pollitt got to know Betteridge first when he served as a basketball referee. Pollitt said: “As long as I have known Bill Betteridge, his mindset has always been kids first. As a teacher, as a coach, as an administrator, every decision he made was with the best interests of the students in mind. Mr. Betteridge has been a valuable leader in our district, and we will miss his laughter and his focus on what is best for the kids.”

Betteridge said: “I am so proud to have been a part of Sedalia School District 200 for the past eight years.  I feel we have done many things to promote student success. The community of Sedalia provides tremendous support for our schools.

“The school board has just been tremendous to work with. The board has provided all the resources for our students to be successful. I wish all the best for the Heber Hunt students and staff.  I will miss the great opportunity that has been afforded to me to work with the best kids in Missouri. Sedalia schools will always have a very special place in my heart.”
