The Winona Area Public Schools Board is working with the Minnesota School Boards Association to select a new superintendent. This website will be updated with resources and information until our next leader begins on July 1, 2023.

An important part of the search process is gathering stakeholder input for the board to consider as it moves forward in selecting the new superintendent. The school board is working with the Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) to guide and provide assistance throughout the process, and MSBA has two ways for the school community to get involved — a search survey and a virtual Q & A session.

Application Process

To be considered for this position, an applicant's completed file must be received by MSBA prior to 11:59 p.m. on May 15, 2023.
