Burnsville- Eagan-Savage

Superintendent chosen for district

The Burnsville school board has named Joe Gothard as the district’s next superintendent.

Before unanimously choosing Gothard last week, the board had narrowed the field to two candidates — Gothard, who is currently an assistant superintendent in the Madison Metropolitan School District in Madison, Wis., and Darren Kermes, executive director of the Carver Scott Educational Cooperative and Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative.

Gothard, who has been a teacher, principal and dean of students, will begin work July 1, replacing Randy Clegg, the current superintendent. The board is currently negotiating Gothard’s contract.


Administrator is leaving Burnsville

The assistant superintendent in the Burnsville school district, Chris Lindholm, will be leaving this summer to become the assistant superintendent in Pequot Lakes, Minn.

Lindholm has held his current job for three years. The district will likely post the opening this summer, with the new superintendent making decisions on hiring.
