Henning weighing its superintendent options

Published 9:32am Friday, March 28, 2014 Updated 11:33am Friday, March 28, 2014

A month after Superintendent Dean Krogstad announced his resignation effective at the end of the school year, the Henning School Board has begun assessing three options to fill the position, according to the Citizen’s Advocate.

One option would call for a shared superintendent between the Henning and Battle Lake School Districts. The proposal was made by a Battle Lake representative.

In this scenario, current Battle Lake Superintendent Jeff Drake would give up his role but would remain in place as Battle Lake principal. An outside candidate would be brought in to fill the superintendent position.

Another possibility includes hiring a full-time Henning superintendent and principal along with a vice principal to alleviate some of the day-to-day responsibilities from the superintendent.

A third option, hiring a part-time superintendent and keeping a full-time principal, received little support at a recent Henning School Board meeting.
