Superintendent Interviews - February 21
Posted on 02/16/2017

West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan Area Schools (District 197) will continue its search for a new superintendent when the school board interviews six candidates on February 21.

To inform the search, in January, the district held a series of community meetings and requested feedback from stakeholders through an online survey. The results were compiled into a Superintendent Profile which was used to narrow the pool of candidates for the first round of interviews.

The interviews will be held at Henry Sibley High School in room A241 and are open to the community. Visitors who wish to attend the interviews should plan to arrive early to allow time to complete the check-in process at Henry Sibley’s main entrance. Each interview will be one hour.

Assistant Superintendent, Richfield Public Schools 

9:45 a.m.  Robert Jon Peterson
Executive Director of College and Career Readiness and ALC, St. Paul Public Schools

The second round of interviews will be held at Henry Sibley High School on February 22 and 23, and if needed, February 27. It is anticipated that 2-3 candidates will be selected for a second interview. A question and answer session for the community will be held with each candidate at 5 p.m. on each second interview day.
