Following a motion at the GFW School Board on April 20, a search for a new superintendent will begin. Earlier in April Superintendent Lonnie Seifert accepted a similar position at Twin Cities Schools (Montgomery, Lonsdale and LeCenter). His final day at GFW will be June 30th. The School Board hired South Central Services Cooperative of North Mankato to facilitate the search. The Co-op helped GFW two years when Seifert was hired and have helped about 30 school districts. Most recently it helped Nicollet secure a half-time superintendent when 11 candidates applied.
