Dear ISD 748 Families and Staff,

Hello and happy spring!  In my role as chair of the school board I'd like to provide this update on the upcoming superintendent search and hiring process.  As you've probably heard by now, Dr. Ridlehoover has resigned as our superintendent as of the end of our current fiscal year, June 30.  The school board approved his resignation yesterday.  We thank him for working hard for everyone in our district during his time here, and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.  

At our special school board meeting last Thursday, the board decided to hire an interim superintendent for the upcoming 2023-24 school year.  We plan to post for that position in about two weeks.  The person hired for this role is expected to serve on a temporary basis for one year starting July 1 of this year.

The board intends to conduct the search for our next permanent superintendent during the prime hiring season of late fall to early winter of 2023-24.  That search would be for a permanent hire who would start on July 1, 2024.  We will begin organizing this search process this summer.  As in the past, stakeholder input will be a vital part of this search.  We look forward to working in partnership with the community during this process.

Have an enjoyable spring break!


Matt Moehrle
