The Stillwater Area Public Schools board is seeking input from residents as it searches for a permanent superintendent of schools.
The school board, which has hired the Minnesota School Boards Association to assist with the search, has compiled an online survey for district residents to share thoughts on what qualities and attributes they are looking for in a permanent superintendent. Answers can be submitted until Feb. 10.
MSBA officials also are holding a virtual question-and-answer session about the search at 4 p.m. Tuesday; questions can be submitted in advance or during the Zoom session.
The new superintendent would start work on July 1.
Interim Superintendent Malinda Lansfeldt said in December that she plans to apply for the permanent position.
Lansfeldt, former principal of Afton-Lakeland Elementary School, took over as interim superintendent after former superintendent Denise Pontrelli was ousted from the position in June 2020. Lansfeldt was originally hired to fill a one-year term, but her term was extended.
The Stillwater school district has about 1,100 employees and 8,200 students in 10 schools.
