The previous coordinator, Linda Berg, left after six years due to the long commute from Eau Claire.

Eberhardt will take over the Renaissance Academy Charter School with the future a little murky.

The River Falls School District is in the process of “divesting itself of the River Falls Academy building which currently houses (the) Montessori school and the Renaissance program.”

It’s been determined that the Renaissance program will be housed in a different location for the 2015-16 school year.

A final decision on the new location is expected to be made in the next few months.

As for changes during the 2014-15 school year, Eberhardt said that he plans to “keep change limited to moving into a different facility.”

He said in the future he would like to keep some of the strong programs and add others that will serve more students.

Eberhardt said his duties include: Scheduling oversight, budgets, student intakes, and behavior management. He said he will also be teaching an independent study course.

Eberhardt said he chose River Falls because it’s a “college centered community” and seems to be “a good community to work in.”

Eberhardt, of Bayport, Minn. holds a master’s degree from the University of Minnesota. He did his undergraduate study at St. Cloud State University and earned a science education degree.

For the last two years Eberhardt has worked at the Intermediate School District #917 in Rosemount, Minn. as a principal and dean of students at an alternative learning center similar to the Renaissance.
