The search for a new superintendent for the Winona Area Public School District has begun in earnest.
Hired Consultant Peer Solutions has begun holding focus group meetings to gauge the different constituent groups on what they want in the next superintendent of schools.
District Human Resources Director Pat Blaisdell says input will be sought from a variety of groups, including the general public.
Blaisdell says the school board will be looking for full support from the community on the next person hired.
Applications for superintendent are now open and will close in early March. Blaisdell says the first round of interviews by the school board, with five to eight candidates, will take place March 22nd and 23rd.
Interviews with two or three finalists are scheduled for March 27th, and negotiations with a new superintendent will start right after that.....
