Southern Door Negotiating With First Choice for Superintendent

The Southern Door County School District last week released the names of the three finalists for the superintendent position, and on Monday, the school board began negotiations to hire one of them. 

Tuesday morning, the school board did not release the name. 

The candidates are Brent Johnson, current principal of Thomas Jefferson School in Wausau; Kevin Krutzik, Sheboygan Falls High School principal since 2018; and Marc Vandenhouten, current principal at Southern Door Elementary.

The board set salary and benefit parameters for board treasurer Janel Veeser, and Cooperative Educational Service Agency 7 search consultant Colleen Timm, to follow this week to negotiate a contract. 

With help from Timm, the board and two groups of local stakeholders, including instructors, parents and district residents, conducted first-round interviews Feb. 5 and 7 of six candidates.

School Board President Penny Price said the board should complete the hiring at its Monday, Feb. 19 meeting if not before.
