LPA Superintendent Search Stalls

Lake Park, MN — The search for the next Superintendent at Lake Park-Audubon appears to have stalled. Over the last month the Lake Park-Audubon School Board narrowed their list down to 5, and then to 3, and then had even began negotiations with the top pick. However, those negotiations did not pan out and another one of their top choices chose a different route, leaving the board with some tough decisions on how to proceed. At this week’s board meeting on Monday night, current Lake Park-Audubon Superintendent Dr. Paula Henry says they deliberated on how to move forward in their Superintendent search and ultimately chose to temporarily fill that role with an interim candidate.

Also at this week’s meeting, the Lake Park-Audubon School Board approved resurfacing their gym floors this summer, according to Dr. Henry.

In her Superintendent report, Dr. Henry presented on the “7 Mindsets” that they will be implementing next year in the high school for social and emotional learning and character education.

And Superintendent Henry reported that student health remains strong, and that several students are even getting vaccinated this week.

The Lake Park-Audubon School will also be hosting both an in-person and virtual facility planning open house next week. More on that later this week on R & J News.
