BEA District Has Received 18 Applications for Assistant Principal Position

The filing period for applicants for the Assistant Principal position at the Blue Earth Area School District closed last Friday.


Interim Superintendent Dr. Jerry Jensen said that the District received a total of 18 applications for the position.


The preliminary phase of the search is underway and that will narrow down the candidates list to those who will receive a face to face interview.


The District is hoping to begin the face to face interviews next week and hoping to have a finalist for the School Board to decide on at their meeting on July 15th.


Last month, the Board approved moving David Dressler into the position of K-7 Principal following the resignation of Melissa McGuire.  That move opened up the Assistant Principal position.


Jensen added that the District has already filled several teaching positions but still has a couple positions left to fill.
