On Monday, June 7th at 6pm, the Pequot Lakes School Board will be interviewing four candidates for an interim superintendent position. Superintendent Chris Lindholm resigned effective June 30th after accepting the superintendent position in the Cook County School District. He has been the Pequot Lakes superintendent since 2013.

The interviews are to be held in the high school auditorium and will be followed by a vote from the board to enter negotiations with a candidate. The four candidates to be interviewed are Tamara Schultz, Randy Hansen, Kurt Stumpf, and Beth Borgen-Lindberg.

The decision to replace Superintendent Lindholm with an interim position was agreed upon at the Minnesota School Board Association’s suggestion due to most candidates for full-time positions were likely filled this close to a new fiscal year. The search for a full-time superintendent will resume in the fall, with the MSBA suggesting beginning between December and January with a finalized hire by April.
