Perkins Accepts Position
Wolf Point school board officials were notified on Friday, May 26, that David Perkins has tentatively accepted the position as the school district’s new superintendent.
After public interviews on Wednesday, May 17, Wolf Point trustees unanimously agreed to offer Perkins a salary of $130,000.
Perkins has been the superintendent in Custer for 10 years. He also has a lot of educational experience in Texas including being selected the mentor network principal of the year.
During the interview, Perkins said he will be very involved in the community. People will see him at games, other activities and being active with area clubs.
He feels communication is a key with the school board, community and parents. He isn’t a “top down” person, he believes in working with people and not being a closed door superintendent, Perkins explained part of his success in Custer was being involved in many aspects including even driving an activity bus on occasion.
When asked what he hopes his major contribution will be as a superintendent, he answered unifying for a purpose and identifying where issues are to be fixed.
“If I’m successful, the kids are successful,” Perkins said.
