Bemidji School Board expected to narrow down superintendent applicant pool Monday

The Bemidji Area School Board will meet for a special meeting this Monday.

The agenda says they will review a tentative agreement with the custodial and maintenance bargaining unit for 2021-2023.

Then, the board will shift its focus on the superintendent search.

Board members will review the superintendent applicants’ information and decide on finalists and schedule interviews.

The board will also likely discuss the next steps, such as interview questions, interview procedures and other items related to the hiring process of Bemidji’s next superintendent.

Superintendent Tim Lutz announced his plans to retire this year at the end of January, and the new superintendent is expected to begin July 1.
