HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The Havre Public Schools Board of Trustees held a brief Special Meeting on Monday evening.
By unanimous vote, the Trustees accepted interim Superintendent Craig Mueller’s letter of notification that he will not seek reemployment in the same role for the 2021-2022 school year.
Mueller was named as a one-year interim Superintendent last summer after the position was vacated by Andy Carlson.
“My decision to not pursue this has nothing to do with any ill feelings towards the Board of Trustees or our staff. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working in this capacity with our staff and have learned a lot over the course of the last several months,” Mueller told New Media Broadcasters on Tuesday. “I think it’s more of it needs to be the right fit. I knew going into this this year that it was going to be difficult year, and I look forward to supporting the District in the position I was in before.”
Mueller stated that he intends to remain with the District next school year, preferably in the Assistant Superintendent role he was in during the 2019-2020 school year.
Also at the meeting, the Board selected the Montana School Boards Association to conduct a search for a new Superintendent.
