The AOS 93 Board hired Dr. Craig Jurgensen as the school district’s new superintendent Tuesday, April 10.
The board voted to elect Jurgensen for a one-year contract that will begin July 1, pending certification verification.
Jurgensen is currently the superintendent of the Hampshire Regional School District in Massachusetts.
Jurgensen has been in the position for nearly a decade, according to a Nov. 1 article in the Daily Hampshire Gazette announcing Jurgensen’s upcoming departure from the position.
AOS 93 Board Chair Joshua Hatch noted Jurgensen’s concern for the district he is leaving behind as an indication that the board has chosen the right person for the position.
“That’s the kind of person we want, who cares about, even when you’re leaving, what you’re leaving behind,” Hatch said.
“I’m looking forward to ending the search,” Hatch said.
