Linn-Mar school board names superintendent finalists
Two finalists are administrators in Iowa City; one is from Wisconsin
MARION — The Linn-Mar school board has announced the three finalists for superintendent of the school district. They include two Iowa City deputy superintendents and a superintendent from northwest Wisconsin.
The finalists are Amy Kortemeyer, a deputy superintendent in the Iowa City school district; Nick Ouellette, superintendent of the Hudson School District in Hudson, Wis.; and Chace Ramey, deputy superintendent of the Iowa City school district.
Thirteen candidates applied for the job, including four from outside Iowa. After reviewing the candidates’ application materials, references and social media accounts, five were selected for screening interviews March 10.
Interviews with the three finalists will be March 22. They’ll be conducted by the school board and stakeholder interview teams. The stakeholder teams will include students, staff, teachers, administrators and community members. Each person will provide the board with feedback on the finalists after the interviews.
The new superintendent will begin leading the district July 1.
The Linn-Mar school board hired Grundmeyer Leader Services to assist in the search for a new superintendent. Current Superintendent Shannon Bisgard is retiring at the end of the school year.
