Waubun, Minn. (WDAY TV) - The principal at Waubun High School, who faced losing her job in a federally-funded overhaul of the school, is taking over at Bagley High School.

Helen Kennedy faced losing her job of 9 years after the school landed on a state list of schools with student scores that were consistently below state average on standardized tests.

The state is tapping into federal grand money to take over the schools. That funding comes with strict guidelines, including replacing school principals.

Kennedy will start in Bagley in July. Yesterday, she said a tearful goodbye to students during a gathering.
