Wolf Point’s Search For New Superintendent Continues

It appears that the search for Wolf Point’s new superintendent of schools could take some time.

During its November meeting, the school board voted to interview two candidates on Dec. 1. The Montana School Board Association presented the school board with three applicants. One of the candidates didn’t meet the minimum requirements listed for the position.

Both of those candidates selected to be interviewed, however, have since withdraw their names from consideration.

Interim superintendent Kim Hanks said the school board is talking about next steps in the process.

“I have faith we will have a positive outcome,” trustee Roxanne Gourneau said.

During its meeting in September, trustees approved to have the Montana School Board Association assist with the search for a new superintendent. Also at that meeting, the board officially accepted the resignation of superintendent Loverty Erickson. According to an email to staff members in August, Erickson wrote, “Because of the unknown recent event in our lives, I am no longer able to serve you as the superintendent of Wolf Point schools. I could not give it the adequate time and passion it takes to run this organization to its capacity.”

Since September, Hanks as been serving as interim superintendent as well as high school principal and junior high school principal.
