The Katonah Lewisboro School District is negotiating a contract for the position of superintendent of schools with Dr. Paul Kreutzer, officials announced Thursday evening.
After receiving more than 40 applications for the position, conducting interviews and visiting Kreutzer in his current home school district of New Berlin, Wisconsin, the school board decided to offer the position to Kreutzer, said Mark Lipton, vice president of the school board.
“We are pleased that our search is nearly complete, and look forward to introducing Dr. Kreutzer as the next educational leader of the Katonah-Lewisboro School District,” he said in a statement posted to the district’s website.
The Board of Education will make a formal introduction and offer further information about Dr. Kreutzer upon resolution of the contractual agreement.
The Lewisboro Ledger reported today that the Katonah Lewisboro School District has offered the position of schools superintendent to Dr. Paul Kreutzer, who currently serves as the school superintendent of the New Berlin school district in Wisconsin.
Kreutzer, 40, will replace Robert Roelle, who retired from the position in February.
Earlier today, the district and some school board members had said they were not ready to make an announcement regarding a new superintendent. Interim Superintendent Michael Jumper referred press calls to Mark Lipton, school board vice president, who said the search process was advancing but not yet finalized.
Calls to Kreutzer were not immediately returned. The school district has not yet released an official statement regarding the superintendent selection.
