Search For Superintendent Shapes Up

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Kalispell Public Schools now have a timeline in the search for a new superintendent.

A final decision is expected in late January.

According to the KPS director of policy services, Joe Brott, applications for the job are being accepted now until December 2.

On December 17, the eleven-member board will meet to choose an unspecified number of finalists without input from the current superintendent, Darlene Schottle.

Interviews are scheduled for January 13 and 14, with a final announcement tentatively penciled in for January 27.

Schottle said she would step down last spring. Her last day is June 30, at the end of this school year.

"Time has come for me to do some other kinds of things and for the district to choose somebody to take them into the next generation of learning with the common core," said Schottle.

Schottle says she does plan to stay in the Flathead Valley with her husband, who is retired.
